It is important the school is informed of any absence immediately. This can be done either by emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) texting the school (02102944414) or using the HERO app.
A medical absence of three days or more requires a medical certificate to be presented to the school office.
Schools have a legal responsibility to ensure that the attendance of all pupils is satisfactory. Attendance records of all pupils are maintained in HERO and an audit is carried out each year. From time to time, parents may wish to take their children out of school for an extended period of time.
To ensure that a place is retained for your child or children, and as a matter of courtesy, you must request a leave of absence from the school in writing. Without leave authority, we are required to remove a pupil from the roll after 20 days' absence.
*the school has the right to remove a student from the school roll due to an extended absence with no return date given OR the return date continually changes.
