Reporting absence

If your child is sick and will be late or absent, you must contact the school before 9.30am

Call the school office on 01414 882393 or email office@brede.e-sussex.sch.uk and type ‘Absence’ in the subject line.

If we receive no contact by 9.30am, the office staff will call the child’s family.

Parents and carers – please keep your contact details up to date.

Medical appointments

If possible, please make appointments for the doctor or dentist outside school hours.

Holidays in term time

You should not take holidays in term time.

We cannot authorise a holiday absence. This is true even if your child has excellent attendance. You may also get a fine. 

We only authorise absence in term time in exceptional circumstances. You must fill in a request form which you can get from the school office.
