Late/Absence Procedures

If your child is not going to be in school please let us know before 9am on the first day of the absence. You can now use the Studybugs app to inform us when your child is going to be absent from school. Alternatively you can call the office on 01206 865747 or email the school on to report their absence.

If we have not heard from you by 9am then we will start to call all the contact numbers that you have provided in order to gain an explanation for the absence. We will try each number twice. If we still have not been able to ascertain where your child is then we may have to take further action and in some cases we might report it to the police (as your child will then be classed a ‘missing child’). Please ensure up-to-date contact details are provided, we require at least three.
This procedure is to ensure that we know where your child is and that you are all safe. Please let us know in good time why your child is absent from school. If you would like to talk to me about this please make an appointment to see me.


Our classroom doors close at 8.45, after which time your child will need to enter via the main school office. If your child is going to arrive after 9am, please let us know by telephoning the office on 01206 865747.
