St Michaels School Attendance
St.Michael's School seeks to ensure that all its students receive a full-time education which maximises opportunities for each student to realise their true potential.
What is expected from the parents?
- Please call the school number 02084462256 and choose option 1 before 8.30am each day of your child’s absence.
- Students are expected to register with their form tutor at 8:40am and 3.25pm daily. If they are late to registration twice in a week they will have a detention after school.
- Medical appointments information/evidence (doctor, dentist, orthodontist, hospital, counselling) should be emailed to email@example.com IN ADVANCE.
- If you have child in sixth form, voicemails need to be left on the absence line from Parents/Carers. NOT the student.
- If you and your child are experiencing difficulties with school attendance then email your child’s Head of Key Stage as a first step so we can help!
- Do NOT plan or book family holidays during term time. These will not be authorised.
- If you wish to ask for an exceptional absence (funeral, music exam, family illness) you should email the firstname.lastname@example.org marked for the attention of Mr Stimpson , Headteacher.
- If a student arrives at school AFTER 9.30am they will be recorded as unauthorised for morning registration rather than a late mark until then a reason must be provided by parent to the absence line.
- Where no phone message or email has been received from parents, the absence is unauthorised. This could lead to further action being taken, including a penalty notice being issued.

- Register taken at 8.40am and 3.25pm
- If your child is not in school and there is no message left by a parent on the absence line, the attendance officer will text parent contact numbers.

- Invite you into school for attendance meetings if we are concerned.
- If we cannot establish a reason for absence, then we may make a welfare home visit.
