In the current situation, we would like to inform you about reporting absence during COVID-19.
We are aware that children may need to isolate due to exposure to the virus or if families are awaiting results. It is important that school is informed as a matter of urgency by telephoning the school office. If your child is absent due to isolation or whilst awaiting results, the government has issued a specific code for schools to use when reporting COVID absences. Using this code will not affect your child’s overall attendance however, it will not be back dated. This means if you fail to inform school on the first day of absence, the attendance for that day will be marked as ‘unauthorised’.
