Reporting an Absence

If a child is sick or unable to attend school, parents/carers must call the school telephone number (01782 890121) before 8.30 am each day of absence.

The school will contact parents/carers by text or email if a child is absent and we do not know why. If no contact is made, the school will try to make contact with the pupils' emergency contact and / or conduct a home visit to the pupils' address.


We all work together to support attendance at Emerge School.

1 school year at 90% attendance = 4 whole weeks of lessons missed = 100 HOURS OF LEARNING MISSED!

Please help us and your child by ensuring their attendance remains around 95%, allowing them to achieve their full potential.

Please see below for further information regarding our attendance policy and guidelines. In these documents you will find information relating to holidays, absences, appointments and bereavements.

If you require any further information, please contact the office ( or refer to the Parent/ Carer Handbook.
