Attendance & Absence Reporting

Parents / Carers are requested to telephone the office on 01297 552687 before 8.45am if their child is going to be absent/late and provide a reason.

Where a child is absent from school and we have not received any verbal or written communication from the parent, then we initiate a first day contact process. Office staff check all of the registers from 9.00am to 9.30am on a daily basis, to identify those pupils who are absent. There are occasions when we are unaware why the child is absent and we will contact the parent to check the reasons for the child’s absence.

Further information on our approach to attendance and absence can be found in our Attendance Policy
