Reporting an Absence

Keeping School Informed

It is considered reasonable that parents or guardians should be expected to inform the school if a child is absent. This should be done by telephoning the school and leaving a message on the answerphone, before school starts if possible. The school requests that all absences are followed up with written confirmation upon the pupil’s return. If it is known in advance that the child is going to be absent, it would be helpful if the class teacher and school office could be notified beforehand.
