If students are away from school for any reason, we are required to have an explanation from parents.

Please help us in this task by phoning, texting, emailing or dropping in to explain. We know this may be a nuisance, but it does save us the necessity of coming back to you for explanations.

In the best interests of each child’s safety, a quick phone call or text to the office (ideally before 9:00am) ensures that your child is not expected at school and that we are not wondering what has happened between home and school. You can also leave a message on the answerphone out of hours.

Absence checks are carried out daily for children away without explanation. If we have not heard from you, we will be endeavouring to contact you at home, work, on your mobile.
