Report an absence

From Friday, 2nd November, we will have a new absence answer phone message on our phone system that will enable parents/carers to leave a short description of the reason for your child’s absence.

  • On the rare occasion that your child is not well enough to attend school, we ask that parents please let the office know by phone on 01483 504713 before the start of the school day at 8.40 a.m. 

    If you do leave a message, we ask that you clearly state…


    • The name of your child.
    • Which class they are in.
    • What your relationship is to the child (i.e. mother/father/carer).
    • What the reason for the absence is.

    * Please do not state ‘illness’ but instead be specific like ‘upset tummy’ or ‘high temperature’.


     You can also report an absence via text to our school mobile phone 07803 383 549
