Being at school is important, but sometimes pupils cannot attend school. 

If you know your child is not going to be at school, e.g. they have a medical appointment, please inform us as early as possible.

If your child is not going to be in school because they are unwell, or for any other reason, please phone the school to report their absence. We ask that you speak to a member of school staff and not to report children's absence via transport staff. 

If we do not receive a phone call from a parent or carer, school will telephone you to find out the cause of your child's absence. This is so that we understand how your child is if they are unwell, so that we can give you any information or find out information that we may need to pass on to others. And we want to make sure that all of our pupils are safe. 

Parents must inform the school immediately if they, or the named emergency contacts have a change of address, phone number or email address. In case of emergency we must be able to contact the  parents, carers or a third named person. Parents must provide this information when they first register their child, and keep information including telephone numbers up to date.
