Absence

 

Unexpected absences

Parents are expected to contact Arnold Academy on each day of absence. You may ring the normal school number and leave a voicemail message (Option 1) or, if you prefer, you may send us an email.

Office staff will telephone parents if no contact has been made by 10.00am on the first and each subsequent day of absence.

Upon return, please send in a note to confirm the reason why your child has been absent.  If no reason has been provided for the absence, a standard letter will be sent home requesting this information.

If this action does not result in an explanation, a final follow up letter will be sent by post after seven school days.

 

Planned absence

Parents may also request planned absence for their child, for example for funerals. Please note that, in line with national guidelines, requests for holidays during term time will not normally be approved. Please refer to our policy and request form:
