Attendance and Welfare
For any child to maximise their potential it is extremely important that they attend school every day as the learning in one lesson will provide the basis for the next. It is understood that from time to time a child will be too unwell to attend and we ask parents to inform us on each day of absence by either
· Sending us a notification via the MyEd app
· Ringing the main school line on 0117 3772200, selecting option 1 (Main school) or option 2 (Sixth form) and leaving a voicemail.
We expect any routine appointments for your child to see the doctor or dentist to be made outside of school hours. Please let us know in advance of any medical appointments that your child will be attending.
If you would like to request approval for a planned absence (not medical appointment), please download and complete our Student Term Time Leave Request which can be found below.
We regularly monitor attendance in accordance with our Attendance Policy, which can be found here, and we will always look to work with you to resolve any attendance difficulties. Please get in touch if you have any concerns about your child’s attendance.
