  • Reason for absence
  • Signature of parent/caregiver

It is Department of Education policy that this information is provided to the school.

Walking Home From School /Safety Houses

If your child is to walk home from school ensure they know the precise route to take. It is helpful if the parent and child walk the route several times together as this helps to reassure the child and provides opportunities to stress safety rules and road crossing requirements. Warnbro Primary School a Safety House area. Please make children aware of any Safety Houses en route to and from school.

Absences For Holidays

Absences where families choose to remove students from school for periods of time cause significant disruption to the class and teachers concerned. As these absences do not always meet criteria legally defined for children missing school, it is school policy that, other than a diary and daily reading, no work will be set for students during their period of absence.

If you take your child out of school during term time you must provide the school office with a written letter explaining their absence.
