Please get the free Studybugs app for reporting absence and to help improve children's health:

In the event of absence, parents should report their child’s absence via the Study Bugs app.  Parents can also telephone or email the school to give the reason for absence in the morning of the first day of absence and each day of absence thereafter. School does not observe a 24 hour rule following vomiting/diarrhoea but parents are requested to ensure pupils are fully recovered before returning to school.

All appointments for doctors or dentist should be made outside of school time if at all possible.   For hospital and orthodontics appointments please provide details as soon as possible to ( and provide a copy of the appointment card or hospital letter which will enable the Attendance Officer to authorise the absence.  If an emergency doctors or dentist appointment is unavoidable then please provide a medical appointment card or slip with date, pupils name and surgery stamp signed by the receptionist.  

Pupils in years 7 to 11 should be collected from the Main Reception by their parent/carer or another adult contact on their Student Data Sheet.  Pupils should make their own way to the School Office to sign out for any appointments at the agreed time. Office staff will not collect pupils from lessons. Any pupil who needs to leave the premises during school hours, for whatever reason, must report to the school office before leaving school.
