REPORTING YOUR CHILDS ABSENCE
It is vital that you inform the school before 8.00 am in the morning if your child is unable to attend school (for every day of absence).
Please use EduLink One to report your child's absence or call the Student Absence Line on 01273 890407.
ABSENCE DURING TERM TIME
There are just 190 school days a year and it is a legal requirement to attend school regularly. This means that there are already 175 days set aside for weekends, holidays, family visits and rewarding days out.
With 175 days already marked out as ‘non-school-days’, you should have an exceptional reason to withdraw your child from school.
We believe every school day counts to give your child the greatest opportunity of attaining a good education and to support a happy and healthy future.
FORM TO REQUEST ABSENCE
The Department for Education will only allow a Head Teacher to grant a leave of absence if there are exceptional circumstances. If you consider that your request for an absence is exceptional you will need to complete and send us the absence request form via email, post or by hand for the attention of Helen Key.
