Late/Absence Procedures

Absence/Late Procedures


If you wish to either report your child as absent from school or to report they will be late in and they require a lunch to be ordered, please followthe guideliess below:


If you wish to report your child as absent, please either telephone the school number (01962 881311) before 10.00am and leave a voicemail message indicating your child's name and class and reason for absence. If you wish to email the school to report the absence, please ensure you email as this mailbox is constantly monitored (Please do not email the main email address for the school as this may not always be read straight away). 


Absences need to be reported to school by 10.00am at the latest so that attendance registers can be updated for that day.  Text messages will be sent out to parents if the school office do not know why your child is not in school.


If you wish to report your child as coming into school late and you wish to give us your lunch choice, please telephone the school to let us know before 10.00am.  


Thank you
