All students are registered by tutors at the beginning of the morning and afternoon sessions.  We ask that parents/carers contact college if their young person is absent to tell us why.  It is also important to telephone the escort on school transport (or the Transport Office 01243 753530) to save the minibus a wasted journey.  Any absence that is not explained by a parent must be recorded by college as unauthorised.  If a student has an excessive degree of absence or absences without adequate explanation, the college will involve the Pupil Entitlement Team.

We operate a policy of contacting families on the first day of absence if we have not been contacted by 9:30am.  This will happen automatically by email.

Students who are absent with sickness and/or diarrhoea should not return until 48 hours have passed since the last bout of these symptoms.  Students who return before they are fully recovered will be sent home.
