Attendance Matters


Procedure for reporting absence due to illness

Please call the absence line 01730 812451 (option 1) before 08.00 or email  for each day of absence. The attendance phoneline and email are monitored continuously ensuring that your message reaches us first thing in the morning. Please leave a brief but concise message including full student name, class number/year group, your relationship to the student and their symptoms. Messages such as ‘unwell’ or ‘ill’ do not provide enough information for us to code as an authorised absence. Please note we do not authorise absence for minor ailments (coughs, colds, sniffles, stomach ache, headache etc)

Procedure for reporting medical/other external appointments during the College day

Please email in advance with the date and time of the appointment and a copy of the appointment card/letter or screenshot of the reminder text. Please include in your message the time you wish to collect/expect to return your child to College.

Procedure for requesting other absence from College

Please download a student absence request form (available on our website), complete and return to at least two weeks in advance for consideration.
