URGENT – Attendance

Good morning
I am very concerned that parents are not ringing school to notify us of any absence. This can lead to home visits by the local authority attendance officer which nobody wants.
We monitor attendance daily and it is now becoming a cause for concern.
Please contact school first thing in the morning, to let us know why you are not sending your child into school or it will go down as an unauthorised absence. This can lead to more formal procedures in the future if attendance is poor. 
Thank you
Mrs Priest-Jones
