Absence from School

 

If your child needs to be absent from school for any reason, school should be notified as early as possible on the first morning of absence.

Please note that the following information is required by the Education Welfare Officer on her weekly monitoring visits:

Evidence must be provided in advance of doctors/dentist/optician/hospital appointments. Failure to provide evidence may result in your child being recorded as an unauthorised absence for the whole session. If your child is absent from school for 10 sessions through illness medical evidence should be provided to avoid the absence being marked as unauthorised and incurring a fine.

Below is the guidance leaflet provided by the Local Authority regarding medical appointments and illness.
