Report Pupil Absence

All pupils are expected to attend classes throughout the school academic year, on all days that the school is open. Please bear in mind, that apart from illness, absence from school should only occur in exceptional circumstances. Like all schools we must make annual returns, in which we must record the number of unauthorised absences during the school calendar. The following procedure is therefore extremely important.

Absence due to illness, etc.

If your child is ill, and therefore absent from school, please telephone the School Office on 020 8947 0859, e-mail absences@ursuline-prep.merton.sch.uk or complete the form below before 9.15am on the morning of the absence. The school office is open from 8.00 am.

On your child’s return to school, please complete the Absence Explanation Slip, explaining the reason for absence. This can be addressed to the class teacher and sent via the bookbag.
