Reporting Absence

Reporting Absence

The pupil’s parent/carer must notify the school on the first day of an unplanned absence by 10am or as soon as practically possible. Parents/Guardians can notify the school by calling 01452 770301 or emailing

The school must be notified on each subsequent day of absence.

We will mark absence due to illness as authorised unless the school has a genuine concern about the authenticity of the illness. If the authenticity of the illness is in doubt, the school may ask the pupil’s parent/carer to provide medical evidence, such as a doctor’s note, prescription, appointment card or other appropriate form of evidence. We will not ask for medical evidence unnecessarily. If the school is not satisfied about the authenticity of the illness, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and parents/carers will be notified of this in advance.

Complaints and Concerns

Any person, including parents and carers of children registered at the school or members of the public, may make a complaint to Thomas Keble School about any provision of facilities or services that we provide. We will use this complaints procedure unless complaints are dealt with under separate statutory procedures (such as appeals relating to exclusions or admissions).

The difference between a concern and a complaint The DfE guidance explains the difference between a concern and a complaint:

  • A concern is defined as “an expression of worry or doubt over an issue considered to be important for which reassurances are sought”
  • A complaint is defined as “an expression of dissatisfaction however made, about actions taken or a lack of action”

For information about raising a concern or a complaint, please see our complaint procedure below.
