Reporting your child’s absence

We understand that absence due to ill health can be unavoidable. If your child is going to be absent please:

Contact the Academy by 8.30am via email at with the following details:

  • Child’s full name.
  • Childs form group.
  • Reason for absence.
  • Anticipated length of absence.

Please email each day of your child’s absence.

If we do not hear from you and your child does not arrive, our Attendance Officer will contact you. 


100% Attendance

Every term certificates are awarded to children with 100% attendance and their names are entered into a raffle. 


Medical Appointments

If your child has a medical appointment coming up please notify us in advance and provide us with a copy of the appointment letter or card.



Every day counts but every MINUTE is equally important!

Each child arriving late causes disruption to the rest of their learning group.

Lost minutes = Lost learning.

Over an academic year, 5 minutes late each day equates to 3 days lost!

10 minutes late each day equates to 6.5 days lost!

Please refer to our Attendance and Punctuality Policy for more information.
