Student Absence


The NHS has a useful page that helps parents and schools decide whether a child is well enough to attend school. Along with the Chief Medical Officer, they say it is usually appropriate for parents and carers to send their children to school with mild respiratory illnesses, including general cold symptoms like a minor cough, runny nose or sore throat. Without an accompanying high temperature, a child would be expected to attend school. Have a look at the website for more information using this link: Is my child too ill for school?

Please complete one of the forms below to report your child's absence from school or to tell us in advance of an appointment. If you have any further questions or have problems with the form, please email
