Absence

Wherever possible we would like to see your child at school every day as high attendance supports the best possible learning success. If your child is unable to attend though, please ensure you let us know using the absence reporting function on ParentMail. Alternatively, please either telephone the school office on 01908 268920 (from 8.00am) or send an email to Mrs Annette Robson at bursar@deanshanger.northants-ecl.gov.uk . All absences will be followed up with a phone call home as part of our First Day Response.

For all planned absence from school, parents / carers should fill in an absence form available from the school office and downloadable here

Please note that holidays in term time cannot be authorised and should be avoided as they negatively impact on the learning of the child and the rest of the class. 

The school will work with the local authority and parents should a revised timetable be required for your child, but this would only be granted in exceptional circumstances and after approval.
