Reporting a Pupil Absence


If a pupil is unable to attend, parents should telephone the school by 9.30 am on the first day of absence,                     and each day of absence following that.

If no contact or message is received from parents by 10.30 am, the school will send a text to confirm                           the absence.

When the child returns to school he/she should bring a note explaining the reason for absence as,                                   by law, the school must account for all absences.

If the child is going to be absent from school for a medical appointment, an appointment card or medical                 evidence as proof of appointment is required.
