Attendance / Absence

We believe that regular and punctual attendance is essential if pupils are to receive the maximum benefit from educational opportunities.

We aim to develop positive relationships between home and school to support good attendance.

We ask you to telephone school before 9:30am to let us know if your child will be absent. You can ring 01253 893102 and select option 1 to go through to our attendance line. Alternatively you can email

If we do not receive a telephone call we will contact home to find out the reason for the absence. We ask that you support us in our aims and give written notification of any foreseen absence.
