Attendance / Absence

The expectation of Ewell Grove is that all pupils attend 100% unless there is a genuine reason for the absence approved by the Headteacher.

In the event of absence from school, parents must contact the School Office before 08:30 am, giving the reason for absence and an approximate estimation of how long the absence is likely to last.  This can be done by telephone, e-mail or by sending a note to school.

If we do not hear from a parent by 08:30 am then the absence will be marked as unauthorised.

This is different to ‘exclusion’ as used in an educational sense.
