As part of our Safeguarding Procedures, if you know your child is going to miss school through illness please notify the School Attendance Officer by 9.30am on each day of absence. Please explain the absence either by telephoning – 01423 535635 (the dedicated absence line), or by completing the online absence form or by emailing; HGSAttendance@hgs.rklt.co.uk (please include a contact phone number). This is usually sufficient for short absences but if the period runs beyond 3 days, please contact the student’s Year Manager to discuss the likely date of return and any special arrangements we might need to make.
We ask that medical appointments are made outside school hours. Please could parent(s) /carer(s) contact HGSAttendance@hgs.rklt.co.uk or 01423 535635 to advise of any appointments in advance. If a student is likely to miss registration please call or email on the morning of the appointment. On their arrival at school the student must sign in at Student Reception.
For any appointments that require the student to leave school during the school day – parent(s) /carer(s) need to contact school as above.
As part of our Safeguarding Procedures we need to be advised of:-
- the time of the appointment
- the time they must leave school
- the arrangements for getting to the appointment
Students must sign out at Student Reception. If they return to school later on the same day then they must sign in again at Student Reception.
