Absence Reporting

Dear Parents/Carers,

As schools are now back to face to face learning, the Government has stipulated that normal school attendance rules apply. We know all too well that children do get ill from time to time but this is just a gentle reminder that if your child is off school with an illness or for any other reason, you need to let us know, on the day, and before 9.30am.

If we don't hear from you, your child's absence will be unfortunately have to be marked as 'Unauthorised'. If a child accrues 5 or more 'Unauthorised' days of absence in a 100 day period, the Local Authority can issue Parents/Carers with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

Obviously we want to avoid this, so good communication with the school and children attending whenever possible is key.

Please do use the free StudyBugs app to report your child's absence or alternatively, you can email the school office:  We ask that absences are not reported through Class Dojo, thank you.


Many Thanks
