Reporting student absence

Answerphone facility for reporting pupil absence through sickness

Following a number of requests from parents, we have installed a message facility on the school number 01473 601252 to enable parents to leave a message about a sick child before the school switchboard opens in the morning.

The line will be open from 7.00-8.30am, after which the telephone will switch to being answered by the administration staff. Please do not use this facility to leave messages about medical appointments during the day – you should continue with the usual procedure for this which is to write a note in your child’s planner.

You should telephone the school by 8.30am on the first and every following day that your child is absent due to illness.
