Absence and Illness

Children are expected to be in school every day, unless they are ill, and parents/carers are required by law to provide the reason for absence.

If your child is absent, please ring Welfare, 020 8863 9509, before 10 am each morning of their absence to enable us to record it correctly in the register and to cancel their lunch, if one has been ordered for them.

If your child feels unwell once they are at school and we feel they need to be at home, we will contact you by phone. PLEASE ENSURE THAT WE HAVE AN UP-TO-DATE EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBER IN OUR RECORDS.

Parents/carers should make every effort for routine dental or medical appointments to be made during holiday time or after school.

Holiday absence will not be authorised so holidays should not be arranged during term time.
