If your child is absent, you should call the main school telephone number 01322 556333 and press option 1 on their FIRST day of absence. This will re-direct your call to the Attendance Co-ordinator’s office. If necessary please leave a message, clearly stating your daughter’s name, Form, and reason for absence. Alternatively you can email the Attendance Co-ordinator to inform us that your daughter will not be attending school on email@example.com Your telephone call should be followed up with either a letter or email upon your daughter’s return to school in order for us to authorize the absence.
In order to maintain the safety of all of our students we also use a communication package called Keep Kids Safe which allows us to send important messages to parents instantly via text, voice or email. We are asking all parents for their cooperation; should you receive a text regarding your daughter’s absence, please could you reply by text or call the number provided in the text message you receive as soon as possible.
