Reporting your child’s absence


If your child is off school due to illness or an appointment, please contact the school office between 8.00am and 9.00am, explaining why they will not be with us. 

If you have not informed us of your child’s whereabouts, we have to contact you as part of our safeguarding process.  If your child is going to be in late after an appointment, we ask that you inform us as to whether your child will need a school dinner.

This can be by email  or by telephone 01233 630820 where you can leave a message.

Please call each day of your child’s absence.


If your child has a medical appointment coming up please notify us in advance. You can email this to




Every School day Counts but every MINUTE is equally important!

All children arriving once the school gate is locked MUST enter school via the school office.

Make every minute count
