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 advance of any medical appointments or religious observations which will result in an absence


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.
