We require a phone call made to the office on 01706 822002, as soon as possible with the reason for your child's absence or lateness. A message can be left on the child absence section of the phoneline. This includes absesnces for appointments. If no message has been recieved, a phone call will be made at 9.30a.m. to ask for a reason for absence. Should there be no reply, an unauthroised mark will be placed in the registar until contact has been made.
All requests for Leave of Absence in term time for any purpose other than medical
appointments must be made in writing to the Head Teacher, explaining what the exceptional
circumstances are. Leave of absence is not normally granted for holidays. If there are no special extenuating circumstances, the absences will be deemed ‘Unauthorised’ which may involve the issuing of a Fixed Penalty Notice.
Children are not allowed to leave the premises during school hours unless a parent, or some other responsible adult known to us, collects them.
We attach great importance to punctuality and children are expected to arrive at school at their allocated time. We also expect children to be collected at the allocated time. Should there be any reason that this can't happen, a call must be made to the office so the school are aware of the situation. Your child will be kept safe and may then be taken to the Hazles Club and an emergency charge incurred.
We have no waiting accommodation for parents inside the building. Therefore, it would be appreciated if you would collect your child promptly in their respective yards when you call at the end of the school day.
