Reporting an absence

07860 054395


Appointments during the school day

Ideally, your child will attend appointments outside the school day, but if your child has an unavoidable appointment during the school day, please ensure you send an email to [email protected] (or a message via the MyChild App) at least 24 hours in advance where possible. Please ensure that your child knows what time they need to come to the Student Reception (by the Sports Hall) to sign out of school. In your email please detail:

· student full name

· form group

· details of the appointment with evidence if possible

· what time your child will need to leave school

· whether they are being collected or if they will be making their own way to their appointment.


School communication

In respect of communication, we will be using the MCAS messaging option to inform parents/carers of events in school. You will need to login to the My Child at School system to make sure you are not missing important messages from school.
