All holidays and routine dental and medical check-ups should be attended outside school hours or within the 13 weeks your child is not in school.
Medical Consultants and Orthodontist appointments are inflexible. Therefore if, despite your best efforts, your child’s appointment has to be in school session time, please attach a copy of the letter of appointment to a completed a ‘Pupil Absence Form’, and then return it to school. Mrs Johnson will only make contact if further clarification is needed.
If you wish to request permission to take your child out of school for any other reason, a minimum of five working days notice needs to be given.
Please email Mrs Johnson at : firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the reason for the request of absence. A ‘Pupil Absence Form’ should be completed and email correspondence attached prior to handing the form to the office.
