The Swanmore Pyramid of Schools have an agreed policy for the approval of absence from school which conforms with legal guidance from the Department for Education. The leaflet which you can download from the bottom of this page reinforces the message that “Every day counts” and we hope parents will support us in ensuring every child arrives at school promptly and that any absence is kept to a minimum.

If your child is ill, please notify the school on a daily basis by 10am. We have a dedicated answer machine for absences on 01329 833065.

An application form to request an absence due to exceptional circumstances can also be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
