Absence and Attendance


What do I do if my Child is Absent?

We know that illness is unavoidable and to be expected but knowing whether pupils are going to be absent from school and the reasons for any absences is an important safeguarding issue for the school.

It is therefore, vitally important that if your child is not going to be in school that you complete the Absence Form by 9:15am. 

Absence Form

If you are unable to access the form please either call the school and leave a message on the school absence line on 01737 350344 (you do not need to speak to a member of the office staff) or email the office on: scoffice@leoacademytrust.co.uk

Please note that if your child is unwell for 5 or more days, medical evidence may be requested.
