REPORTING ABSENCE

If your child is unwell or absent from school you can report their absence via the School App – go to MORE, FORMS, SELECT REPORT MY CHILD’S ABSENCE.   Alternatively, please phone the school office, giving your child’s name, class and reason for absence.  Absence should be reported by 10am, if we have not heard from you by this time we will contact you.

Holidays in term time are actively discouraged by the school and the Local Authority and leave can only be granted in exceptional circumstances. If your child needs leave of absence you will need to write to the school requesting this however permission cannot be granted retrospectively. Parents who remove their child from school without authorisation may be issued with a Penalty Notice.

If someone else will be collecting your child from school please email admin1@st-marys-ashford.kent.sch.uk or after 2.30pm telephone the school office on 01233 625531.
