Absence Procedures

Illness and Absence


All absences from school must be explained in writing  by a child's parent / guardian.  

If your child is absent from school, the school office must be contacted via telephone before 9.00am on 01202 692779. 

There is an answer phone facility for messages to be left. 


Alternatively you can report an absence by emailing our dedicated email address:

The school office will contact home to explore all unexplained absences as soon as it is possible each morning.


  • If your child has had sickness or diarrhoea they should stay away from school until 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea
  • If you child is unwell in the morning, please do not send them to school
  • If your child is absent from school for a prolonged period of time, we would ask you to remain in regular contact with school until your child's return 
  • After any period of absence, a letter confirming the absence must be handed to a child's class teacher upon return to school
  • A letter / note is required if parents / guardians wish their child to be excused from P.E / Games. 


If your child is taken ill or injured whilst at school, first aid will be given and you will be contacted if it is felt that the child should go home.

In more serious cases, the child will be taken to hospital. It is important to have up to date emergency telephone numbers which can be used to contact parents. 


Parents are reminded that under current Government regulations, the only official reasons for absence are illness, visits for medical treatment and special leave in extenuating circumstances.
