Please telephone or e-mail the school absence email address on the first day of your child's absence. In the subject heading of your email please put your child's name and class.  Please contact the school on day 3 and regularly after this if your child is still absent.  When your child returns to school if you have not sent an email, a letter should be sent into school to confirm the reason for their absence.


In line with guidance from the Department of Health to schools, please ensure that if your child has vomited or had an episode of diarrhoea, you allow 48 hours before they return to school.

DfE regulations (Sept 2013) state that we are no longer able to grant leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.  Holidays are not classed as exceptional circumstances.

Any request of absence should be sent into school via a letter addressed to the Head Teacher giving full details. This should be sent into school at least 14 days before the period of absence. 

Many Thanks

Measles cases are rising in the UK.

The safest and most effective way to protect yourself, the children you care for and your community against measles is to make sure that you and your children are up to date with MMR vaccinations.

 Two doses of the MMR vaccine provide 99% protection against measles. It is never too late to get your MMR vaccination and you can check whether you or your child’s vaccinations are up to date by contacting your GP or by looking in your child’s red book.
