Pupil absence-illness & medical appointments

Pupil Absence from School

It is very pleasing to note that our attendance figure for the year so far is just over 96%. This is excellent and reflects the superb attendance of the majority of our pupils. Thank you for your support for this.

I would like to remind everyone of the procedures to follow if your child is not going to be at school.

Sickness absence

If your child is ill and cannot therefore come to school, please telephone the school on 01525 750900 and press option 1 or email pupilabsence@alamedamiddleschool.org.uk by 9:30 am.

Medical Appointments

If your child has a planned medical appointment (or dentist appointment), please email pupilabsence@alamedamiddleschool.org.uk or send a letter in to school addressed to Mrs Maidment our attendance officer. It is helpful if you contact Mrs Maidment directly (via the pupil absence email or letter)  rather than send the email to form tutors.  Mrs Maidment can then make sure tutors are aware of absences. A leave of absence request is not needed for medical appointments.
