School Communication Service

The safety of our students and effective communication with parents/carers is of paramount importance to us. We use a communication system called RS ConnectED which securely sends text messages, automated voice broadcasts and emails direct to parents and carers. We find that personalised, timely and direct messages are always the most effective.

The RS ConnectED is a service that can be used by parents, carers and members of the community for absences and to contact the school.



If your child is absent you can text the school on 07624 880273 or call 01229 469800 before 9.30am on each day of absence.

Application for Absence

It is a legal requirement for parents/carers to obtain the permission of the Headteacher before removing their child from school in order to take a holiday during term time.  Parents/carers may be issued with a Penalty Notice if they do so without prior arrangement with the Headteacher. Parents/carers wishing to apply for their child to be granted leave from school should complete the Application for Absence from School form. Please click here to download the form.
