Non Attendance

  • Parents are requested to inform the setting if their child will be absent from pre-school. This could be via telephone or via another parent.
  • After registration, any absentees after two missed sessions for which the setting has not had prior notice, will be contacted by telephone.
  • If we fail to contact the parent/guardian by telephone at home or by mobile, we will contact any other telephone numbers we have on the child’s record.
  • If we then fail to contact anyone, we will continue to ring for that day and the following day. Failure to make contact, the Pre-school leader who is also safeguarding officer and the deputy, will visit the child’s home to check on their well being.
  • If there is still no response or pre-school feels the child’s well being is at risk, we will contact the police or Social Services as appropriate.
