Reporting Absences

Parents are asked to notify the school by telephone or by the use of the STUDYBUGS app on the first day of absence or by letter of any known future absences and an estimate of how long the absence is likely to last.   The school office will investigate unexplained absences. We follow guidelines from the Pupil Entitlement team who regularly monitor school attendance of each child.

In the case of physical sickness and/or diarrhoea, it is important that you inform us and that your child is absent from school for a 48-hour period after the last period of sickness. This enables your child to fully recover as well as protecting other children and staff from the spread of potentially infectious illnesses.
