Main School Reception

School reception staff Mrs Craker (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Wardle (Thursday and Friday) can deal with most general day to day enquiries and are well placed to steer you in the right direction for who may be the most appropriate person to contact. Our switchboard is staffed from 8am to 4pm each school day. Voicemail messages may be left outside of these hours.

 

Reporting Student Absence

Q: What should I do if my child is off sick or has a hospital, dentist or doctor's appointment?

A: Absences should be reported via ParentMail using the Absence button as soon as you are aware your son/daughter will not be attending that day.  This should be repeated each day they will be off school.

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.

If there is a medical or safeguarding issue you would like to discuss other than sickness, you can also email our Attendance Officers attendanceofficers@furzeplatt.net and Safeguarding Mailbox Safeguarding@furzeplatt.net 

 

Q: What if my child requires medication in school?

If your child is taken ill or is involved in an accident during the day, he/she will be cared for by the school nurse or first aid staff until we can contact a parent or guardian.
