You are required to call the school every day before 8:30am via the school absence line on 01582 661158 or via an Edulink message. Please ensure you provide the student’s name, form class and reason for absence.
Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
If we do not hear from you and the school view your child as “missing” this may result in enquiries being made to ensure their safety.
If we do not hear from parents/carers offering a reason for absence, the student will be given an automatic unauthorised absence. If frequent absences occur, the Academy will work more closely with families to resolve attendance difficulties.
Leave of Absence during Term Time
Our school Policy does not permit leave of absence in term time, in line with government policy as stated in our Home School Agreement which parents/carers sign electronically when starting with the Academy.
We ask that you make every effort to avoid booking medical and dental appointment during school time. Where this is unavoidable, parents/carers should put this in writing to the school office or use the absence reporting facility on Edulink and attach a copy of the appointment card or letter before the date of the appointment. Please also include the time you will need to collect the student.
Non-cost supportive documentation
Parents and carers can submit appointment cards or prescription labels which help us consider an authorised ill absence code.
