School Absences


If your child is absent from school please:

  • Contact the school on the first day of absence before 9.00am - this can be done via Study Bugs or by telephoning the school office on 01245 320505;
  • If no one is available to take your call then please leave a message;
  • Contact the school on every further day of absence, again before 9.00am;
  • Ensure that your child returns to school as soon as possible.

Late Procedure


We request that the school grounds are evacuated by parents, carers and families by 8.55am as this is when our school gate will close.

Registration is at 9.00am, after this time, your child will need to access the school via the office and will receive a late mark in the register.
