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.
