Absence Information and Holiday Request Form

If your child is not well enough to attend school, please ring to inform the office on the first day of absence by 8:25am.

If your child is absent after this time and we have not received a message, the school will contact you for safety reasons. We may also carry out a home visit.

If your child has a medical appointment, please inform the school in advance and bring in a copy of their appointment card for our records.

The Trust has published the school holidays in advance. Please make arrangements to take family holidays within these dates, as holidays during term time will not be authorised.

SATs and school-based assessments take place between Easter and the Spring Bank holiday.

School Closures

Please can we remind parents that in the event of the school being closed due to snow, the following actions will be taken as soon as a decision has been made:

An email and text message via parent mail will be sent to all those families who have signed up for this option. (For those people without email/text, it would be a good idea to ask friends who have to give you a ring as this is the most efficient way to contact everyone quickly) If you wish to opt for email and text communication please contact the school office.

An announcement will be made on the school’s website and Bradford Schools Online.

The BBC Bradford website lists all those schools closed – again this does take time to update. Announcements are also made on Radio Leeds, Pulse Radio, Sunrise Radio and Fresh AM.

PLEASE AVOID RINGING THE SCHOOL. If there is no announcement that school is closed then this means it is open. It is hoped that any such announcement would be made by 7.45am so that parents can make alternative arrangements for child care. However, to help keep the school open during snowy weather, any help from parents to keep paths around the school site clear of snow would be very welcome.
If there is a heavy fall of snow during a school day you may wish to collect your child early if you feel your own personal circumstances warrant this. A text message will be sent if we need to close school during the course of the day and we need you to pick up your children.
However, please be assured that staff who live close to the school will remain on site until all children have been safely collected.
