Illness/Extenuating Cirmstances

You can report an absence due to illness or extenuating circumstances by either:

  • Using the ‘Report an Absence feature on the home screen of EdulinkOne to send a short electronic message at any time of the day or night
  • Clicking on the link on the website to ‘Report an Absence’ or send an email to attendance@cps.hants.sch.uk
  • Telephone school  (01252 613483) before 10am and choose option 1 to report that your child is absent for each day that they are off

If you know that your son/daughter needs to leave school during the day please adhere to our protocol outlined below:

  • Write a note to their form tutor explaining the reason for their absence and the time they need to leave school – this can be written in the student planner
  • The note must then be shown to their form tutor during morning registration
  • The form tutor will sign it to acknowledge the note has been seen
  • The student must retain the note
  • If the student is due to leave during a lesson the note must again be shown to the teacher whose class they wish to leave
  • The student should then ‘sign out’ at the attendance office and hand the note in
  • If the student needs collecting from school during break or lunch, they must go straight to the ‘signing out’ sheet, sign out and hand the note to a member of staff.

Arriving late to school:

If you are aware that your child will be late to school please:

  • Write a note to their form tutor explaining the reason for their late arrival in advance of the date if possible
  • Telephone the school on 01252 613483 and leave a message on the answering service explain the reason for the late arrival. (This service is available 24/7)
  • If the arrival to school is anticipated to be after the start of morning registration at 8.40am students must sign in at the attendance office
