Absence Procedure


If your child is to be absent for any reason, please contact the school, before 9am where possible, using the following (in order of preference) :

If you receive a text or email message in relation to your child’s absence please reply as soon as possible. This is essential to ensure we safeguard all our students.

In respect of communication home from HGHS, we are now using the email option on a regular basis to inform parents/carers of events in school and to pass on various messages. It is therefore important that we hold an up to date email address that you check regularly. Please log in to the SIMS Parent APP,

www.sims-parent.co.uk to check that we have the correct email address on record.

Please tell us your child’s name, form, your name/relationship to student, a contact number in case we need to ring you back and reason for absence.
