COVID 19- School Attendance
Following Government guidelines school reopens to students in Year 10 and 12 in the week beginning 15th June. Students are eligible to attend one day per week according to individual timetables.
Students who are expected to return to school should attend. If a student is unable to attend school on a day that they are eligible to attend, parents / carers must telephone the school absence line on 01895 639227. Until the end of term all absences will be authorised and parents will not face any legal consequences of their child not returning to school at this time, however if there is no communication with the school, a referral to the Participation Team will be made. This information is subject to change following guidance from the DFE.
The full Government guidance regarding attendance can be found on the DfE website using the link below:
