Reporting Your Child's Absence

If your child is absent for any reason please contact the school before 9.30am. every day of their absence.

You can do this by:

  • Phoning the school on 01494 522476 and leaving a message on the absence line
  • Emailing the School Administrator: officehba@theparkfederation.org

Whichever option you choose, clearly state your name, the pupil's name and class, plus a brief reason for the absence. 

All late arrivals and reported absences will be updated to registers by 10.00 am. If we have not received a message reporting the reason for absence, we will be contacting you. If we do not receive a reason for your child's absence, it will be marked on the register as unauthorised.

Dental/Medical appointments - advance notice

If you know in advance of your child's absence from school on specific days (for dental/medical treatment or for domestic reasons), prior notice should be given to the School Administrator.

Leave of absence

If you wish to apply for leave of absence, this application should be made at least one month in advance directly to the Headteacher on the appropriate form, which is available from the school office. Please note that the granting of absence during term time is entirely at the discretion of the Headteacher and is only made in exceptional circumstances.
