ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL

If your child is absent from school it is important that you should telephone (01667 453700) as early as you can in the morning (answer machine is available) or email (nairn.academy@highland.gov.uk) to inform the school on the first day of absence.  If your child is likely to be absent for a prolonged period, (three days or more), then it is helpful to let the school know.  We would ask please that absences are then covered by a note/email for our registration records.

If a pupil needs to leave during the school day for an appointment etc., pupils need to bring with them a note from parent or guardian. Pupils must report to the school reception and ‘sign out’, if returning the same day, they must report again to the reception and sign in. Where at all possible, medical and dental appointments should be made out with school hours.

If pupils fall ill during the day, parents are contacted for them to collect their child, therefore it is essential that we have up to date day time contact numbers and emergency contact numbers for all pupils.
