Student absence from school due to hospital or doctor / appointment

Student absence from school due to hospital or doctor / appointment

Should students be absent from school due to unforeseen visits to the hospital or doctors please can parents and carers send in medical evidence such as a copy of the doctor’s appointment card, a copy of the prescription or a copy of the medicine label showing dates. 

Please send this information for the attention of Mrs Myers, Attendance Officer (or electronically via email at myersj@weyvalley.dorset.sch.uk).  Whilst such a visit during school hours will count against the student’s overall attendance, medical evidence will ensure the student is not penalised against the weekly 100% attendance reward

Thank you
