Late Absence Procedure
If your child is unable to attend school for any reason please contact the office on 01255 870282 as soon as possible.
Leave a message on the answerphone if it is out of hours.
We need to know the reason for your child's absence to record for Essex County Council data monitoring.
If your child has been vomiting or had diarrhoea they must not attend school for 48 hours after the last episode to safeguard the rest of our pupils.
If you need to take pre-arranged time off please contact the office for a permission form. However, while Government policy remains to refuse permission for all term-time holidays except in exceptional circumstances, it is unlikely to be granted and will be recorded as unauthorised absence.
