* If you or another sibling is ill
* On their birthday
* To attend a non-urgent medical appointment or check-up (wherever possible, dentist and eyesight appointments should be made after school hours or at the weekend).
* To avoid going on a school trip (if you have any concerns about a school trip, please ask to make an appointment to see a member of the Leadership Team).
In cases of illness, parents are asked to telephone the school on 0208 2704466 and speak to a member of the office team or leave a message on the absence line. Please remember to give specific details of the illness because “poorly/unwell” is not sufficient.
If the absence continues for any length of time, please keep the school updated. A note confirming the reason for absence with any medical documentation, should be sent in with your child upon their return.
If you are unsure whether or not your child is too ill to come to school, please see the advice provided on the school website.
