If your child is absent, please notify school before 9.30am by messaging via the MCAS app starting the message with ‘Attendance’ or by telephoning the Attendance Officer. If your child is absent for more than one day, we request that you message or telephone each day they are not in school.
Where possible, all appointments should be arranged out of school hours to ensure minimum disruption to learning.
When appointments have to be made in school hours, parents must inform our Attendance Officer in advance by telephoning 0161 973 1179 ext *2238 or via the MCAS app. Please note that on the day of the appointment, it is the child’s responsibility to ensure that they arrive at main reception on time.
If an emergency appointment is required and advance notice is not possible, please telephone school to advise that you are on your way to collect your child. Please let the receptionist know the name and year group of the pupil and the time of the emergency appointment.
Holidays during term time
Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013. This prevents headteachers from authorising holidays/absence during term time. Leave of absence from school should only be in exceptional circumstances and this should be requested by completing the form below. The form should be returned to the Attendance Officer.
