Reporting Absences

I would like to introduce myself to you, I am the Attendance Officer at Cranbrook Education Campus and the first port of call for reporting absences or to discuss any absence related queries you may have.

Absences need to be reported no later than 8.30am. To make this process as easy as possible for you, there are three ways that you can do this:

  1. The School Number – 01404 823293 Option 1. (Please leave a message)
  2. Via
  3. Send a text message via Groupcall/Expression

For all three options please state your child’s full name, class and reason for absence. If you do not contact the school your child will be given an automatic unauthorised absence, these remain on their school records.

All of the above options are checked every morning. I am unable to reply to them all but please rest assured they will be checked for messages.

Should you have any other queries about absence please email me and I will respond as soon as I can.

All medical/dental appointments where possible should be made outside of school hours. If your child does need to attend one please email me with a copy of their appointment letter/card.

For any other period of Absence please download an Absence Request form here-

Please note unless there are exceptional circumstances all holiday will be unauthorised.

Thank you in advance, your co-operation is appreciated.

Kindest regards,

Suzanne Hazelden
