Reporting Absence

Every day that your child is absent from school you should call the school’s automated Absence Line on 016977 45396, before 8.40am if possible.

You will be asked to provide the following information:

– Student’s name
– Form group
– Reason for absence
– Your name
– Your relationship to the student
– Your contact number

  • The dates of your child’s absence and the reason for the absence should be clearly noted in your child’s Student Planner on their return to school.
  • Any concerns regarding your child’s absence should be discussed directly with their Year Group Manager.
  • If you child does not attend registration and you have not contacted us to report their absence, you will receive a text message from us. It will ask you to contact us soon as possible with a reason for their absence. This will enable us to update your child’s attendance record. On days where we experience adverse weather conditions and school transport is affected, an absence text will not be sent. However you will receive a text message to inform you should this be the case.

As a school we are striving to improve students’ attendance. pdf Attendance information for parents and carers
