Girl With Child in Africa

Reporting Absence

If your child is unwell and unable to attend school, please telephone the school’s Attendance Assistant on 023 92 711808 as soon as possible.

Leave of Absence

The school’s Attendance Policy does not authorise absence during term time for holiday or ‘family time’. However, term time absence may be authorised in exceptional circumstances. Parents wishing to apply for leave of absence during term time should complete a leave of absence form (‘LOAF’) and submit the completed form to the Headteacher in good time.
