Q: What should I do if my child is off sick?
A: If your child is off sick you should call the school as soon as you are aware they will not be attending. If there is a medical or safeguarding issue you would like to discuss other than sickness, you can also email our Attendance Officers email@example.com and Safeguarding Mailbox Safeguarding@furzeplatt.net
Q: What happens if my child has a hospital, dentist or doctor's appointment?
A: If possible, student appointments should be made outside the school day. However, we recognise that occasionally students may need to leave site to attend appointments. Where possible make any appointments after 1.45pm.
Students must sign in and out at either Main Reception (Years 7-11) or Sixth Form Reception (Years 12 and 13) when leaving for/returning from appointments.
Q: What if my child requires medication in school?
Furze Platt Senior School has a number of social media accounts and we encourage parents to follow them as they are updated regularly:
