Medical Absence

Where a pupil is ill and unable to come into school, we ask that parents contact the office each day to inform the school that they will not be in. 

If a child is prevented from attending school due to illness and the school is satisfied with the explanation the absence is treated as authorised.  When possible medical or dental appointments should be taken outside school time, but where it is not these appointments are authorised when confirmation is received from parents.
