What Happens If I Am Absent From School?

Parents/carers can report absence by sending a text to the school's absence line +441452260176 or email, or use the School Gateway App and leave a message before 8.30 am if your child will be absent or late. 

When reporting an absence please clearly state your Child's name, Tutor Group and specific reason for absence.  If the message you leave just says that your child is “ill” the Attendance Officer will call to identify the nature of the absence from school

If the absence is COVID related please provide details when reporting the absence e.g. family isolating following a positive COVID test of a family member and from what date.


All absence must be reported by 8.30 a.m.


Where a student is absent from school whether COVID related or not classwork and homework can be accessed using Satchel One.
