It is important that parents inform the school either by telephone or with a note via transport escorts, if their child is to be absent from school.

All absences will be investigated and will be discussed with parents – informally on the day of absence; parents evening; TAC or EHA meetings; at Annual Reviews.

Leave of absence for pupils is only granted in exceptional circumstances. A leave of absence form must be filled and signed by the Headteacher. Taking holidays without express permission may result in a fine.

All unexplained / patterns of absences will be investigated and if necessary procedures outlined in our Policy for Safeguarding Children will be commenced.

Parents can call us on 01902 558330 to inform us why their child will not be attending school.
