Absence from School 


If your child will be absent from school through sickness, please let us know by using the Absence Notification facility on ParentMail by 9:30 a.m. Alternatively you can contact the School Office on 01666 823514.  If they will be absent due to a medical appointment then please inform the School Office as soon as possible.


All other absences and holiday requests 

DfE regulations regarding absence no longer permit Headteachers to authorise any leave or absence from school unless the circumstances are ‘exceptional’ relating to a ‘one off’ isolated situation.  Any such request must be submitted in good time using the Absence Request Form available to download below.  Hard copies are also available in the school foyer.

A 2017 leaflet from the DfE detailing their regulations can be accessed by clicking the button below.
