Late/Absence Procedures

Absence Procedures


Parents and Carers should always telephone the school office on 01344 860106 where a message can be left on the absence line or send an e-mail if their child is not attending school by 9.15am. 


The School Receptionist will telephone parents on the first morning of an absence if notification has not been received.


A written explanation must be provided when the child returns to school. Registers are checked regularly and where there is an unexplained absence, a written request will be sent for an explanation.


After three weeks, the absence will be marked as unauthorised if no reason is provided. Regular analysis of absenteeism will be carried out and letters may be sent to parents if attendance falls below expected levels.


Please refer to the Attendance Policy for further information.

Children need to go into class promptly and be registered. Please help your child get to school on time.



If you arrive after the gates have been closed you will need to go around to the main office (no entry will be allowed via the gates). You will need to sign your child in on our electronic system in the reception area and they will then be allowed through into school.
