Allenbourn Middle School

Reporting Absence

If your child is absent from school, please contact the office on 01202 886738 before 9am when the register closes.  Please tell the school your child’s name and class, the specific reason for absence and the expected day of return.  We ask you to call each day that your child is not in school.

The attendance of all pupils is monitored closely and if attendance falls below 95%, parents will be informed via letter.  If attendance falls below 90%, parents will meet with the School Attendance Lead to discuss strategies which may need to be implemented to help improve attendance.  Any attendance which does not show signs of improvement will be picked up on by the termly visits of the Local Authority’s Attendance Officer.  House points are awarded for attendance and certificates are awarded for 100% attendance.
