Please be reminded that an Absence Slip needs to be completed after a pupil has missed school.  This is available below for you to fill in and return as required.  

These forms can still be collected at the school office but having listened to parents who are unable to come into school due to work etc, absence forms are also available to fill in online below to make them more accessible. Absence forms are also available to download and print if you prefer.

We have also been asked why written confirmation of illness is required – why isn’t a phone call enough?  As a Local Authority school we have to follow the LA’s guidelines around the recording of absence which clearly state the following: “A letter or telephone conversation does not automatically mean an absence is authorised. A school must receive written confirmation from the parent or carer. Following this the school will make the decision as to whether they will authorise the absence.” (‘Isle of Wight School Attendance Guidance and Legislation’ document September 2018).

Completed forms should be returned within 2 weeks of your child returning to school in order that we can make the necessary changes to the Local Authority’s official registers.  They can be returned via your child’s book bag or if easier, scanned copies can be sent to the office inbox – office@hunnyhillschool.co.uk

With over 300 pupils and the high volume of absence slips required, as explained in April 2019, we regrettably no longer have the capacity to send out reminders but we hope by making the form more accessible via the school website, this will be helpful to all families.  

 

The form can also be linked directly here: https://forms.gle/kZpGqMUpUW7q2TBc8

Should your contact details change, please complete the form attached below and return to the school office. Paper copies are also available by request at the school office.

Some Children, whilst fit to attend school, may require medicines prescribed by their doctor during school hours. In addition, it may be necessary for children with long term complaints or chronic illness such as asthma, diabetes or certain allergies to receive medicine which may not be prescription based. 

In order for medication to be administered in school, a form must be completed. A form is attached below and paper copies can be requested at the school office. 

Please hand in all medication to the school office each morning.

When your child reaches Years 4, 5 and 6 we give you the opportunity to give them permission to leave school unaccompanied.

 

To support this, we issue a walk alone pass which the children will need to have with them at all times so our growing number of staff are aware of which children are allowed to leave school unaccompanied.

 

If you are meeting your child halfway home they will still need to leave school unaccompanied and therefore will need one of our Hunnyhill passes.

If you would like your child to leave school unaccompanied, please fill in the attached form below. Please note that if at any time you need to change the arrangements, you must inform the school office in writing.
