We are pleased to announce that we are introducing a new, more efficient and secure system for reporting your child’s absence, this is called Studybugs.
We ask that you kindly download the free Studybugs app, or register on the Studybugs website, and use it to tell us whenever your child is ill and unable to attend school. This will replace the telephone system and will start from Monday 6th March 2023..
A member of staff will still telephone to follow up with any absences and carry out home visits where necessary.
Get the app or register now (https://studybugs.com/about/parents)
There are 3 reasons why we are moving to Studybugs.
1. It is integrated with our systems so we know right away if your child is unaccounted for.
2. It is quick and easy to register and use, and it automatically reminds you to keep us posted.
3. It links to the NHS and you will receive the relevant guidance for your child’s illness.
