Late/Absence Procedures


Excellent attendance and punctuality are extremely important if your child is to reach their full potential. As a school we set ambitious targets for attendance and punctuality and monitor both of these stringently. You will receive termly reports that include information about your child in both of these categories and, should we have concerns at any stage, we will contact you at the earliest opportunity.


Leave of absence for any reason must be requested in advance using the form below. Please note that we will only authorise absence during term time in exceptional circumstances. Absences for holidays in term time will not be authorised and could lead to a fixed penalty notice being issued. For full details of our attendance policy, see the policies section of the website.


Absence Reporting:

Should your child be absent from school for any reason please telephone (01257 276688) or email ( the school office stating your child's name and reason for absence before 08:30 on the first day of absence. Should we not hear from you, the school office will contact you as soon as registration closes. 

Should your child continue to be absent for any reason, please contact school on all subsequent days until their return to school.

Should your child return to school with prescribed medication, please ensure that the adminstration of medication form below is completed and handed to the school office along with the relevant medication. Please do not send medication into school with your child.
