Attendance

If you are booking a medical appointment for your son/daughter please can you first attempt to make the appointment after Academy hours. If this is not possible please do send students in before or after the appointment as appropriate.

An absence is classified as authorised when a child has been away from school for a legitimate reason and the school has received written notification from a parent or guardian.  If a child has been unwell and the parent telephones the school to explain the absence, this must be followed up in writing by the parent.

 

If the child has been to the GP, Dentist, Hospital etc, please bring in any evidence (e.g. Doctor’s Note; Appointment Card; Medicine Bottle; Copy of a Prescription), so that we can take a copy for the school records.

 

A written explanation of the absence must be received within 2 weeks of the absence, for this to be recorded as authorised.  If we do not receive written notification when your child returns to school, then your child’s absence will be recorded as an “unauthorised”
