Report a Student Absence 

If your child is ill or unavoidably absent, please notify us via the Parent Portal, Arbor App or call the attendance line on 01943 883000 and select option 1.  This must be done before 08.30 and on every subsequent day of absence.

If an absence is not reported and is unexplained, parents/guardians will be contacted, as it is our duty to Safeguard. We will endeavour to make all reasonable enquires to ascertain the whereabouts of the child and the reason for absence. If St Mary’s fails to make any contact with parents, a member of staff may conduct home visits, contact he Police or Children’s Social Care to complete a safe and well check. We ask that parents/guardians keep school up to date with changes to contact details.
