Attendance and Absence


Is my child too ill for school?

It can be tricky deciding whether or not to keep your child off school or nursery when they're unwell. The link below is a useful guide on common childhood conditions and when your child should be absent.

Should my child go to school or nursery today?

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. 

If you are unable to access the form please either call the school and leave a message on the school absence line on 020 8644 7415 opt 1 (Molesey Drive Site) or 0208 644 8969 opt 1 (Kingston Avenue Site) or email the office on:
