Attendance Contact

If your child is not able to attend school please can you DoJo Mrs Absence (linked to your child's class on DoJo), before 9.00am with an explanation as to why they are off school. Please give a specific reason e.g. sickness and diarrhoea, cough, cold, temperature. Please do not just put 'unwell' as we have to categorise illnesses for the DfE and Public Health England. This is the only DoJo/message you need to send into school, you do not have to phone and leave a message or DoJo the class teacher.

If your child is visiting health professionals please DoJo Mrs Absence with the information and a screenshot of the appointment letter prior to the visit even if they are returning to school the same day.

If you have a meeting with the Attendance Leader or Local Authority please ensure you telephone the school if you are unable to attend to ensure professionals time is not wasted waiting for you to attend.

If you have any questions relating to holidays or absence during term time please email the Attendance Lead Mrs Claire Dale.
