Reporting Pupil Absence

Regular attendance at school is the best way we can all ensure that our pupils make the progress they need. We encourage parents to take holidays outside of term dates. However, should it be necessary to remove your child from school during term time, please complete a Leave of Absence request form (below) to be sent in to the Head for approval.

The school undertakes to follow up any unexplained absence as quickly as possible and the support of parents is vital. We ask all parents to contact the school by 9.30am on any day their child will not be attending in order that we can be aware of the reason.

Please report pupil absences on 01296 711 380 or on office@furzedownschool.org.uk.

Our attendance policy can be found Policies section. Link to Policies
