Absence from School
Please find the downloadable Absence Request form below.
This must be completed for all time away from school (e.g. music or other external exams, medical appointment, dentist).
The completed form should be returned to the School Office for authorisation.
Inclement Weather Policy
It is our policy to stay open if at all possible. In the absence of any message to the contrary, you can assume that the School is open and that Breakfast Club and After School Care Club will take place as usual. We endeavour to put on all scheduled after school clubs. If after school clubs have to be cancelled during the course of the day, then this message will be given to parents/carers at the standard home time. Any child who was expecting to be in an after school club and is not picked up at the standard home time will be looked after until the scheduled end of the club. If it is not safe for you to travel to school, then please do not jeopardise your safety or that of your child. Similarly, if you feel it is not safe to wait until usual home time to collect your child, then please do pick up your child earlier.
Absences due to inclement weather
If your child cannot attend school on any particular day, it is important to telephone the school office. All absences need to be ‘authorised’ in the official school register. If you let us know that it is not safe for your child to attend due to inclement weather, then your child’s absence will be entered as ‘authorised’.
