reporting absence

It is the parents’/carers’ responsibility to let us know the reason for all absences. You may want to talk to the School Receptionist or may choose to leave a message on line 1. Please state the name of your child, class teacher or year group and reason for the absence. 

Dovecote Primary School phone number 0115 9152953.

We also need to know when you believe your child will return to school. This needs to be on the first day of absence, soon after 8.30am. 

Any absence which is known in advance should be notified to the school beforehand.  If the school has not received notification of absence by 9.30am on the first day of absence, we will contact you by text or phone call.  This is to ensure the children’s safety.

You can contact our school office by telephoning us on 0115 9152953.
