Where possible try to avoid routine medical appointments during the school day. If they do have an appointment, please send them to school with a note in their diary stating the reason they need to leave and the time you will collect them.
You can also email Attendance/Welfare Officers:
You can also get in touch via School Gateway. School Gateway is a text and email service, which allows us to communicate more quickly and effectively – via a smart phone app. You and the school can save money by downloading this app from the app store, which is free and can be used on iPhones and Android.
It is quick and easy to do. All you need is your mobile number and an email address that the school holds on record for you.
