It is important to notify the school on the first day of your child’s absence giving the reason for that absence. You can do this in two ways – either ring in early and leave a message on the answer machine. This message isalwaysreceived and entered into a book. We will not return that call and it is not necessary for you to phone to see if we received the call. Or you can ring the office as soon as you can, preferably before 10.00 a.m.

When your child returns to school, please confirm the absence with a letter.

It is important to keep the school informed of any absence. If your child is away for several days, ring in regularly to keep us updated. Any absence not registered will be unauthorised after all endeavours have been made to establish a reason for the absence.
