Absence from school can only be authorised by the Headteacher. Parents are requested to contact the school by 9:00am on the first day of child’s unplanned absence either by telephone, in writing or in person at the school office (0208 804 2101 ext 1) or by completing the online absence form.
Absence for any reason other than sickness or medical appointments must be authorised by the Headteacher beforehand. If you take your child out of school without previously speaking to the Headteacher, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.
