If your child is too ill to attend the Academy, parents/carers should contact the Academy Office as soon as possible
by telephone on 01226 722484. The telephone system allows callers to leave a message 24 hours a day.
Please give your child’s name, Class, the reason for the absence, and how long you expect the absence to last. We ask that you contact us each day that your child is absent unless you have given us an indication of how long the absence will last.
We ask that you make routine medical and other appointments out of school time, where possible. If this is not possible, we require notification in advance. Please telephone, email or provide a note from home or appointment letter/card to confirm the appointment. In the event of an emergency appointment, please ask the Hospital/Doctors/Dentist/Opticians for proof of your appointment.
In most cases, your child should attend the Academy before the appointment and return to the Academy afterwards wherever possible.
