Report an absent student

If your child is unwell:

  • Please inform the school preferably via the Parent Gateway on every day of absence, no later than 10am. If you do not have access to this, please telephone the school absence line on 01202 495778.
  • If you know in advance that your child needs to be absent (e.g. for a medical or dental appointment) then please do let us know via the Parent Gateway or absence line.
  • In the unlikely event that you have been unable to contact the school to explain your child’s absence, then please write a note in their logbook and ask your child to show this to his/her form tutor on their return.
