Report Absence

If your child is ill, please let the school know as soon as possible on the first day of absence. Telephone 01209 842360 and press 1 to report an absence.

We will attempt to contact you if your child is not in school and we have not had a reason for absence, it is therefore essential that we have a current number on which to contact you.

Absent for more than one day?

If a child is absent on one day we will assume he or she continues to be absent for the same reason on any subsequent days.


Following the guidelines set out by Cornwall Council, if a child has been sick and /or had a stomach upset then they need to be off school for 48 hours.

Not collecting your child?

If your child is going home with someone else, please write a note to their class teacher – it saves confusion. If you collect your child, please inform the school if you know you are going to be delayed.

Changes at Home?

If there are any changes in home circumstances which might affect your child at school, please let us know so that we can keep a careful eye on them. Of course, we will treat any such information sensitively. Medical


Please notify us of any medical conditions, permanent or temporary, which may affect your child in school e.g. asthma, allergies.
