Medical and Dental Appointments

Parents and carers are requested wherever possible to try to arrange medical and dental appointments for outside of school hours using the new NHS out-of-hours evening and weekend GP appointment service and therefore, keep medical appointments in school time to an absolute minimum.

If on the rare occasion a medical appointment during school time is unavoidable, then we would ask that your child attends school beforehand and/or returns to school immediately that same day following their appointment.

The appointment card should be submitted to school as evidence.

If a student is absent from school first thing in the morning or immediately after lunch then they cannot receive an attendance present mark for that session.
