REPORTING ABSENCE/MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS/HOLIDAY REQUEST
Absences must be reported by 9.30am to the School Office followed up by a letter giving the reason for the absence/sickness (we have a voicemail facility and all messages will be picked up by the office once it opens at 8.00am). Please note that the School asks parents to observe our 48 hour rule from the last bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea and do not send your daughter in before they are fully recovered.
Medical appointments must be in writing prior to the appointment (notwithstanding emergencies then a phone call will suffice, followed by a letter confirming the appointment).
Holiday requests must be in writing to the Form Tutor prior to the holiday being booked.
SCHOOL NURSE REQUEST
Hayfever season - if parents would like to send in antihistamines for their daughter please ensure that our Administration of Medicine Request form accompanies the medication so it can be administered in school.
HOT WEATHER - WATER BOTTLES
If you are sending your daughter in with a water bottle please ensure it is plastic and NOT glass.
Well done to our two teams who took part in the GA Worldwide Quiz on Wednesday evening representing the Geography Department. Thank you to the girls who took part.
