Absence Procedure

 

To report your child's absence call 01270 661528 option 1 or email admin@willastonacademy.co.uk. You must inform school if: 

 

  • your child is unable to attend school due to illness
  • they have an upcoming medical/dental appointment
  • you need to collect them early 
  • absence due to other emergency/ exceptional circumstance

 

If your child has an illness or condition which is contagious such as chickenpox, impetigo, shingles, conjunctivitis etc, please let the office know so we can discuss the guidelines for your child's return to school.

Absence Requests

 

Parents are encouraged NOT to take their children on holiday during term time.

Absences for holidays will only be authorised under certain criteria - these include:

  • If a parent works in the armed forces
  • If the absence is for a pilgrimage or religious observance/ ceremony
  • Any exceptional medical circumstances which mean the absence cannot be at another time
  • If a parent works in a factory/business where there is an annual shut down and no other holiday time is available at any other points in the year – evidence from employers is required for this leave of absence to be considered.

 

A leave of absence request form can be obtained from the school office and needs to be completed at least 2 weeks prior to the absence. For further information, please see the Attendance and Punctuality Policy below.
