Absence from lessons is unacceptable without good reason – attendance is recorded and forms part of a student’s final school reference. Please note the following:
- If your child is absent for the whole school day for any reason, including illness, please call 01342 410140, and leave a message on the sixth form absence line by 8.50am. Alternatively, please email Mrs Barden, KS5 Intervention Leader, on email@example.com
- If your child arrives late for a lesson they must advise Mrs Barden of the reason behind their lateness.
- If your child requests permission for an authorised absence, eg. a medical appointment, driving test, religious event, attendance of a funeral etc, they must see Mrs Barden or complete a pink authorised absence form available in B01 and leave it for the attention of Mrs Barden in her office.
- If your child becomes unwell whilst at school and decides to return home please can they advise Mrs Barden before leaving or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note Mrs Hill in Medical is still on hand to support the sixth form students if they are unwell at school.
