Reporting an absence at Rainhill Sixth Form
We know sometimes clashes are inevitable, but we would ask you to inform us of any events your son/daughter need to attend during sixth form time and would also ask them to follow the absence procedures.
The absence procedures at Rainhill Sixth Form are:
- Student to see Nikki (Administration) to get an absence form;
- Student to fill in dates/times when they will be absent;
- Student to see ALL teachers whose lessons they will be missing to get the form signed;
- Student to collect any work missed before the day of absence.
If your son/daughter is ill or is unexpectedly absent, we would ask that this is reported on the first day via a call to Sixth Form reception. We would also ask a call is made on any following days of absence to allow us to safeguard your son/daughter.
