When you know you will be absent, e.g. for university open or taster days, interviews or educational visits or medical/dental appointments you should complete a Student Time Request-Absence Form (blue) at least 2 days in advance and have it authorised by Mr Marshall or Mr Broome. Medical/dental appointments should, as far as possible, be arranged for outside of school hours.

The school should be notified by phone, before 10:00am, when a student experiences unforeseen absence due to illness or other circumstances. The reason for the absence should be confirmed by a parent/carer, in writing, on return to school by completing a Student Absence Form – self certificate (green).
