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.

Years 7-11

Appointments should be made after 1.45pm where possible.  Students in Years 7–11 must be collected by a parent and need to sign in and out at Main Reception; if you wish your child to leave school unaccompanied, authorisation needs to be given on each occasion that you are not able to collect them in person. Please email to inform them of any appointments that your child needs to leave school for.

Sixth Form

Appointments should be made after 1.45pm where possible. Sixth Form students should sign in and out at Sixth Form Reception (Years 12 and 13) when leaving for/returning from appointments.

All Year Groups

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