Pupil absence

Illness

If your child is ill and cannot attend school you must let us know. Please do this before 9.30 am on the first day of absence by:

Medical appointments

If possible, please make appointments for the doctor or dentist outside of school hours. Where this is not possible please advise of appointment date and timings before the appointment via the school attendance officer providing medical evidence where possible. Absences will be authorised when the correct protocol has been followed.

Holidays in term time

These will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. You must fill in a holiday request form which you can get from the school office.
