If you know that your son/daughter needs to leave school during the day the following is required:

  • Write a note to their form tutor explaining the reason for their absence and the time they need to leave school
  • The note must then be shown to their form tutor during morning registration
  • The form tutor will sign it to acknowledge the note has been seen
  • The student must retain the note
  • If the student is due to leave during a lesson the note must again be shown to the teacher whose class they wish to leave
  • The student should then ‘sign out’ at the attendance office and hand the note in
  • If the student needs collecting from school during break or lunch, they must go straight to the ‘signing out’ sheet, sign out and hand the note to a member of staff. The note must of course have already been seen and signed by the form tutor during morning registration
  • An alternative to a note could be an appointment card

Arriving late to school:

  • If you are aware in advance that your child will be late to school
  • Please write a note to their form tutor explaining the reason for their late arrival in advance of the date if possible
  • Alternatively, please telephone the school on 01252 613483 and leave a message on the answering service explain the reason for the late arrival. (This service is available 24/7)
  • If the arrival to school is anticipated to be after the start of morning registration at 8.40am students must sign in at the attendance office
Please call the school phone number (01252 613483) before 10am and choose option 1 to report that your child is absent for each day that they are off. There is also a link on the website to “Report an Absence”, or you can send an email to attendance@staff.calthorpepark.hants.sch.uk
