If your child is absent from school for health reasons, please make contact with us by 9am on the first day of their absence and each day thereafter until their return. A written note (email accepted) is also requested, explaining why they were absent, upon your child's return to school.

If your child has a hospital appointment, we request that the school office are provided with a copy of the appointment letter, as per our attendance policy.

 

If your child's absence exceeds 3 days, a doctors note or equivalent, may be requested.
