Reporting Illness, Leave of Absence and Early Departures

It is important that we are advised of any illnesses, or requests for absence from school (including notification of medical appointments), in a consistent way and would like to draw your attention to the following:

Reporting Illness

If your son is unable to attend school due to illness or injury, we ask that you complete the ‘Absence – Notification of Illness’ form, which can be found in the forms section on the Parent Portal. Please log in to your secure parent portal. You can also call Prep Reception on +44 (0)1234 362274 in emergencies. It is very helpful if you can let us know before 08:35 so that we can notify all necessary staff of your son’s absence.

Leave of Absence

Any requests for leave of absence (with the exception of medical appointments – see below) should be made using the ‘Absence – Request for Exceptional Circumstances’ form, which can also be found in the forms section on the Parent Portal. Please log in to your secure parent portal. Your form will be received by the Headmaster and your son’s Tutor.

Medical Leave of Absence

If your son needs to come into school late or leave during school hours for a doctor, dentist or hospital appointment, we ask that you complete the ‘Absence – Medical Appointment’ form in the forms section on the Parent Portal (please log in to your secure parent portal), or call Prep Reception on +44 (0)1234 362274. 

Accessing the forms

There are online forms available via the parent portal. To access them, log in to the secure parent portal and select Forms from the menu bar. Once the appropriate electronic form has been completed and submitted, it will be forwarded to all the relevant parties.
