Absence and Sickness


Please call the office at the beginning of the school day to inform the school of your child's absence. There is a designated absence line where you can leave a message. The extension line for this is given when you phone the main school number.

All absences in Early Years and Key Stage One will be followed up by office staff.

Absence is monitored closley. If your child misses a significant amount of school without a valid reason, steps will be taken to follow up these absences.

Holiday will not be granted during school term time. If you have a specific reason for your child not to attend school during the term dates, you will need to fill in a leave request form which will be considered by the Senior Leadership. Parents / Carers taking their children out of school during term time without prior permission could be subject to a fine.


Please do not send your child to school if they are very unwell - even if you have given them medication in the morning. It is unfair on both the child and their peers. Please make a sensible judgement as to whether your child is well enough to attend school and base this judegemnt on the needs of the child.

If your child has vomitted, they must wait 48 hours before attending school again.
