If you are in doubt as to whether your child is too ill to attend school, please consult this helpful NHS information first: Is my child too ill for school?




If still you wish to report your child absent, please complete the google form by clicking the link below to do so, using a separate form for each child.


Absence Form


We do need to know the reason for your child not attending school and will follow this up by calling all held contacts and may visit the family home if we have not heard from you. Please contact the school as soon as you can, once you know your child will be late or not attending.


In cases of sickness/diarrhoea, the Health Protection Agency instructs us that children should not return to school for 48 hours after the last incidence of vomiting or diarrhoea. The Covid-19 isolation period for children is currently 3 days (see Covid-19 operations).


Medical Appointments


If your child has a future medical appointment that means they will be unable to attend school, please can you let your teacher know via ClassDojo so they are aware that your child will be out of class.


On the day of the absence please complete the absence form above to inform the office.


Leave of Absence - Request for Authorisation


Please note, Head Teachers are only permitted to authorise absence in a small number of exceptional circumstances. For instance:

  • attendance at a significant family event eg the wedding or funeral of a close family member
  • religious observance
  • participation in a significant event eg academic, sports, arts   

This list is not exhaustive, however, leave is very unlikely to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.  


In some circumstances, evidence may be requested.


If you still require the Leave of Absence - Request Authorisation Form then please contact the office.
