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 and Safeguarding Mailbox
