Absences

Absence and Illness
 
Parents are asked to contact the school office on 01274 782070 and leave a message on the answerphone before 8.30am if your child is unwell and not attending school.
 
In order to minimise the spread of illness any bouts of diarrhoea and vomiting must be followed by an absence of 48hours
 
If you fail to inform school regarding your child's absence the school office will telephone you or your child's nominated contacts. If we cannot reach the nominated contacts listed we will then make a home visit to gain an understanding of your child's absence. 
Holiday and Absent Request
 
 
If you wish to apply for your child to be absent from school please complete an Absent Request Form (these forms are available from the front reception desk) please return it to the school office at least two weeks before the intended absence. Thank you.
