On each day of absence parents or carers should provide the student’s name, tutor group and reason for absence before 8.30am by either:-

Absence for appointments during the course of the day
If a student needs to be absent during the college day for appointments that cannot be arranged outside of school hours, the following procedure should be followed:
• The college office is informed in advance by email or telephone
• The student must sign out before leaving the college premises and sign in on their return, so the college has a record of them being off site in case of a fire evacuation or other emergency.
Students feeling ill during the course of the day
If a student feels ill during the college day, they must go to the college office to be assessed. If the office staff feel it is appropriate for a student to go home they will phone you and discuss it. Students should not contact parents directly or leave the college without following this procedure.
Requesting leave of absence for an exceptional reason
Any request for special leave of absence during term-time should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of the Headteacher, Ms Loughran.
If you need to contact the college by email for any other reason please use email@example.com
