Reporting Your Child Absent

All student absences should be reported as early in the day as possible by calling 020 8529 1853 and choosing Option 1 or by dialing extension 289. 

Please leave a brief clear voicemail message including:

  • Your child's FULL name
  • Your child's Form Group
  • Reason for the absence

If your child is going to be coming in to school late due to illness, please contact the School as early as possible to let us know that your child will be late. 

Once our attendance checks have been completed and we have not been informed of your child's absence/lateness, you will receive an "Absent from School" email/text alert.  Please ensure you respond as soon as possible by calling the School so we can update the attendance marks.  Absences that are not confirmed will remain unauthorised and will affect your child's attendance.

Please do not ring or email the School except in an emergency.
