Absence due to Illness/Medical

If your child is unwell and cannot attend school, you need to phone 01604 661 011 by 9:00am with the following information:

  • Name
  • Class
  • Reason for absence

If your child's illness is as a result of diarrhoea or/and vomiting the Government advice is that students can return to school 48hours after the diarrhoea and vomiting ends.

If your child will be absent because of a medical appointment, please inform the office prior to the appointment.


Your child needs to be in their classroom by 8.45am. If they arrive after that time, please bring your child to the school office to sign them in.

Absence due to holiday

School need to be informed in advance if you are planning to take your child on holiday during term time. A Leave of Absence Form needs to be completed (see link below) and returned to the school office.

Owing to changes in Government legislation, schools are no longer able to authorise absence for family holidays. Please be aware that if you decide to take your child on holiday during term time you may be subject to a fine from the Northamptonshire County Council Education Entitlement Services team.  A copy of our Leave of Absence Form is available below.
