Report an Absence

Student absence from school should be reported daily to the attendance officer. You can report absence by telephone to Exeter (01392) 204764 and following the instructions to report student absence. If students are absent for longer than originally expected, please re-advise of the continuing absence.

For holiday or other absence requests please complete an Absence Request Form which can be found on our Attendance Information page and return it to school before the requested dates.

If your child is unable to attend school you should contact the school on each day of absence, explaining the reason for the absence. This can be done in several ways:

  1. by visiting our Reporting an Absence page
  2. via the School Gateway app,
  3. leaving a message on the School Answerphone 
  4. by emailing 
  5. a phone call to reception.
