Absence Policy

Attendance and Absence

Parents are asked to let the school know if their child is to be absent from school for any reason.

If a pupil is not coming to school, parents/carers must inform the escort and the transport company before 8am. This also applies when the child returns to school in order that they know the pupil has to be collected after being absent.

If your child is clearly unwell he/she should not be sent to school. If your child becomes unwell at school we shall phone you and ask you to come and collect him/her. If a parent/carer is unavailable we shall request that the emergency contact person comes to collect them.

There are some pupils in Orchard Brae who have an emergency protocol as a result of their condition and this would be followed at all times in consultation with the nursing team.
