Absence Reporting

Lateness or Same Day Absence

Please let us know before 8am if your child will not be attending school for any reason, or if they will be late. Please give us a reason for your child’s absence and let us know when you expect them to be back in school.

Ways to report an absence

Report the absence for free via the absence inbox on the Synergy app or website (link available at the bottom of the page).

Call the Academy absence line on 01782 377159. You can speak to a member of the attendance team or leave a voicemail.

If you’re not sure if you should send your child to school, please contact the Attendance Officer who will talk this through with you.

The NHS has also issued guidelines on when your child should and shouldn’t attend school, please visit nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school for more information.

Leave of Absence Request

Principals are only allowed to authorise leave of absence during term time in exceptional circumstances, therefore it is rare that we give the authorisation to take your child out of school during term time. However we do consider each application individually, therefore if you wish to take your child out of school during term time and you think that your reason for this could be considered an exceptional circumstance, please submit a leave of absence form that can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
