Reporting a Pupil Absence

What if my child is ill?

If your child is absent from school you can either telephone the school on 01522 868287 or send an email to enquiries@swinderby.lincs.sch.uk or pop into the school office before 9.15am to inform us that your child is ill.

 

Absences must be reported each day your child is absent.

 

If your child is absent due to sickness or diarrhoea, they will need to be clear of all the symptoms for 48 hours before returning to school.

What if my child needs to leave school early for any reason?

We ask that medical and dental appointments are made outside of school hours although we realise this is not always possible.  Should such an appointment occur during the school day, and where possible, please notify the school in advance.
