  1. Parents
  2. Attendance



* Everyone must follow guidance on self-isolation and quarantine. This will not count against children's attendance.

If your child is unwell please report your child absent by using the ParentMail App. Alternatively, you can call the school to report the absence. The number is 0117 377 2550. Please leave a message on the attendance line or speak to a member of the office team.

Routine appointments should always be made outside school hours. If your child has an appointment during school hours please be prepared to provide evidence of the appointment, this could be the text, appointment card, letter or prescription.

If you need to take your child out of school for any reason during term time an 'Absence Request' form must be completed and handed in to the office no later than 10 days before the planned absence.

In line with government guidance, holidays cannot be authorised. Absence during term time can only be authorised by governors, and only under exceptional circumstances.

For more information about this please read the Trust's attendance policy which can be found here.
