Taking your children out of school in the middle of the day for appointments is disruptive to your child, the class and the teacher.
We understand at times children will need to attend emergency appointments and sometimes it is not possible to choose a time, such as attending hospital or for exams.
However, we ask that routine appointments are arranged outside of the school day.
Copies of appointment letters from hospitals or exam bodies should be send with the request for absence.
If you child is sick then we follow Public Health England guidelines regarding the period that a child needs to be kept from school. Please follow the guidance below.
