Absence Procedures


  • On the first day of a pupil's absence, please telephone our main office on 0116 2737151
  • When the pupil returns to school, please provide a note for the class teacher or group tutor
  • Please let the school know in advanced of any medical appointments or religious observations which will result in an absence
  • The Principal may grant permission for up to two weeks absence in a school year for pupils to accompany parents on holiday (parents need to complete an absence request form):


Attendance figures are calculated by counting the number of pupils present or absent on each half-day session. When we are not informed about absence by parents we are obliged to record the absence as unauthorised.
