What Happens If I Am Absent From School?

Parents/carers can report absence by calling the Absence Line on 01452 543335 and selecting Option 1. 


Alternatively, email to report an absence. 


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.
