Absence due to illness

All children are expected to attend school regularly.  We actively promote 100% attendance for all our pupils.  


In cases of illness, parents are asked to telephone the school on 01732 355577 and speak to a member of the office team or leave a message on the absence line. You can also contact us by emailing Please remember to give specific details of the illness because “poorly/unwell” is not sufficient.


If the absence continues for any length of time, please keep the school updated. A note confirming the reason for absence should be sent in with your child upon their return.


Please note that absence due to sickness or diarrhoea requires your child to be away from school for 48 hours.
