Sickness Procedure

Absence Procedures & Attendance

Regular attendance is of course important if students are to benefit from the full range of educational experiences and opportunities on offer at Henry Tyndale and so we ask that students are only kept away from school for genuine reasons.

Obviously, however, if a student is not well enough to benefit from being at school, or if he or she is liable to infect another student or member of staff, then he/she should not be at school.

We have a number of students at our school who are vulnerable or at risk to infection and so we ask that you please ensure that students who have any infectious illness are not sent into school. If you know in advance your child will not be coming into school, for hospital appointments etc. parents should ensure Transport are informed and school must be informed of the reason for absence.

In the case of protracted or repeated absence where we have not been informed of a reason, the school will make a welfare call and if this is not forthcoming then the absence may ne investigated by the Education Welfare Officers.
