Each year the school has to complete a return to the Dfe detailing any cases of unexplained absence. Therefore, we need to know the reason for any absence at the earliest opportunity. For the purpose of this, each school day is split into two sessions- morning and afternoon. If a child is absent for one day they have missed two sessions.
We request that parents call the school office by 9.30 to report their child's absence. A note should then be handed to the classteacher on the day the child returns to school explaining the child's absence, regardless of whether a phone call was made to the school.
