Student Absence

Research has proven that there is a high correlation between school attendance and academic performance and success.

If your son/daughter is going to be absent due to illness please telephone or email the relevant school absence line/email address before 9:00am on each day of absence. Students should also bring a letter explaining their absence on their return to school.

If you know in advance that your child is going to be absent please ensure that you notify us at least 5 working days in advance of the appointment. A note should be given to the Form Tutor, or you may email the relevant achievement leader assistant with the appointment details. Please be advised, that if you are collecting your child early, all students must be collected from student services, students will not be allowed to leave the site without a parent/carer or other authorised adult. 

Requests for absence for holiday, family events etc should be directed to Mr Neves via his P.A. Ms E Final, by email to
