Attendance & Absence Reporting

At Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, we recognise the vital connection between regular attendance and academic success. We are committed to ensuring that every student benefits from the full-time education we provide, and we believe that consistent attendance is key to achieving this goal.

If your child is too unwell to attend the academy please contact us by:

Telephone – Call 0208 850 7678 (and follow the instructions to reach your child’s small school) (State clearly your child’s full name, year group and small school)

Please remember to book appointments outside of school hours. You are also required to let us know every day your child is going to be absent.

What to do if your child is ill

  • Telephone the school immediately on 0208 850 7678. You must phone every day that your child is too ill to attend and follow it up with a letter upon your child’s return. Please provide evidence where possible, e.g. appointment cards, copies of medication/prescriptions, etc.
  • Wherever possible make any dentist/doctor/hospital appointments outside of school hours.
  • Do not keep your child away from school if there is an issue in school; contact the school to discuss the problem with a senior member of staff.
  • Do not keep your child away from school for unnecessary reasons, e.g. birthdays, holidays, relatives’ visits, shopping trips, your own ill health.
  • If your child has ongoing medical issues, please ensure that this is discussed with the school so we can best manage and support your child.
