In the mornings, until we have received parental notification of a child’s absence, we cannot be absolutely sure that a child is safe and we should be very grateful for your help in closing a possible loophole here. It is essential therefore, that you let us know by telephone or email if your child is unable to attend on a particular day. It is also essential that you please inform us if your child is not going to be attending a club or Waiters if they have been signed up for those after school activities.
With regard to planned absences, such as a visit to a school or a doctor’s appointment, please send an email request to the Head of the Junior Department for Byron House and the Pastoral Assistant Head for Senior House, copying in the appropriate secretary (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) .
Registers are also taken for after school activities. If your child is due to stay for after school care or an extra-curricular activity and plans change, please contact Byron House or Senior House Reception as appropriate so that a note can be made on the registers. Any unexplained absences will be followed up.
