If your child is unwell or absent for any other reason, please contact the school at the earliest opportunity (before 9.30am) by telephoning the School Office. You are welcome to leave a message on our answer phone either before or during office opening hours.
Please state your child’s name, year group and the nature of the illness/absence. It is a statutory requirement for the school to enter a reason for absence in the Attendance Registers. If we have not heard from you by 9.30am, we will telephone in order to find out the nature of the absence. If we are not able to contact you, your child’s absence will be entered in the attendance register as ‘unauthorised’.
The school operates a policy of no authorised leave for family holidays during term time. Unauthorised absence over five days will be referred to Suffolk County Council and may result in a fine.
