King Edward VI Grammar School Chelmsford

Absence, Attendance & Sickness

DJBET电竞菠菜人 www.nhsanshi.com On the first day of absence, and on each subsequent day,  parents are asked to email their child’s absence to absence@www.nhsanshi.com.  This applies to ALL year groups - Years 7 to 13.

When your child is unwell at school

Unwell students can report to the school’s Medical room where they will be seen by the Student Welfare Officer or another member of staff if the Student Welfare Officer is absent.  If the child is too unwell to stay at school and if the Student Welfare Officer thinks that the child can travel home safely on their own, then the child will be allowed to travel home, providing one of the child’s parents has given their permission.  If, however, the child is too unwell to stay at school and if the Student Welfare Officer does not think that the child can travel home safely on their own, then a parent will be contacted to collect their child.  When the child is this unwell, parents should not wait until the end of the day or until they have finished work, but should come to collect their child immediately.

HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME

In line with government guidance, leave of absence is now only granted in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances may include family emergencies or agreed activities of an educational nature.

With the exception of sudden emergencies, leave of absence should be authorised by the relevant Head of School (Lower School – Years 7-9 – Keith Milliken), (Middle School – Years 10-11 – John Davies), Upper School – Years 12-13 – Helen Wiltshire).  Applications should be made in writing to the appropriate Head of School and, where supporting documentation is available, copies of this should be attached.  In the case of parents who have more than one child at the school, a separate application will need to be made for each child.  Applications should be made at least ten days in advance of the requested date.  If leave is granted, the decision as to the number of days your child can be away from school will be decided by the appropriate Head of School or the Headteacher.
