Absence & Medical Appointments

Illness
If your child is going to be absent from school please ring before 9.00am on the first day. You will be able to leave a message using option 1, stating name, class and reason for absence. If a specific reason has not been left we may call you back. When a child is absent and no call has been received, we will call you to find out why your child is not in school.

Please ring to report your child's absence on 01763 260432, option 1

Medial Appointments

We ask that non urgent appointments such as dental checks and routine vaccinations are made outside of school hours wherever possible.

If your child has a hospital or specialist appointment please bring the letter to the school office where a copy can be placed on their file as proof of authorised absence. 

To collect your child during the school day please visit the school office to sign your child out of school.
