If your child is absent for any reason, you must contact the school office on the first day of absence, preferably before 9:00am. If no contact is made by 9.30am then you will be contacted by the school office to provide a reason for the absence. After this, all emergency contacts will be called until a reply is received. A home visit will be made if possible/appropriate by school or other agencies involved. If we are unable to make contact and all stages have been completed ,we will need to contact the police regarding the absence using the 101 telephone number to report the child as missing.
