Reporting absences from school

For safeguarding reasons, school needs to be informed about every absence from school as soon as possible. This can be done either by phoning school on 01709-710033 and leaving a message or by emailing . School will confirm by phone or text that the message has been received. Where a child is absent without a reason, school will make every every effort to contact the family - usually by phone (including phoning known social circle) and by sending a text.

In the light of recent national incidents, if no response can be elicited, school may refer the absence to other agencies such as social care or the police.
