Sickness absence: if the absence lasts more than one day, parents and carers are required to call on subsequent days to provide an update. A letter should be provided to the school when the child returns from their absence.

Medical or dental appointments: Parents and carers should call the team to report absences for medical or dental appointments. The school requires a letter or appointment card as evidence of the appointment to ensure permission can be given to be absent from class.

Serious illness, for example, an absence which is going to last more than one week

  • Injury, for example, broken limb
  • Contagious diseases or illness
