Leave of Absence

If you cannot attend school please make sure a parent/guardian contacts reception by phone before 9.30am on the first morning of the absence.

When you return to school your parent/guardian should explain your absence using the space provided in your planner.


Where attendance falls below 90% the Head of Year will contact you to discuss any issues and to see how we can help to improve this.

When attendance falls to 80% the Education Welfare Office will contact parents to discuss the problem.

Further action may be taken by the EWO if there is no satisfactory improvement.

If you need to use crutches in school your parents MUST make an appointment to meet with your Head of Year to make special arrangements for you to attend. For Health & Safety reasons you will not be allowed to attend until this meeting has taken place.
