Attendance and Absence

If your son is going to be absent from school, please telephone the school on 01772 613112 and choose option 1 to leave a message on the attendance answerphone. Please make sure you tell us your child's full name, form and the reason for their absence. This is particularly important if the reason for absence is related to COVID-19. If we have not been notified of a reason for absence, we will send parents a text message asking them to contact us to provide the information.

If your son has a medical appointment during school time please contact us in advance by School Synergy so that staff are aware, to authorise the absence and know when the student will be signing out for their appointment.

If you need to request time off school for any other reason please complete the request for absence form, which can be downloaded below, and email it to Requests will be considered by Mr Christie (Deputy Head Teacher) and you will be notified whether the absence will be authorised or not.
