In the event of your child being ill or unable to attend school for another reason, parents and carers must telephone or email the school before 10am on the day of absence.

On the day a student returns to school after a period away, a signed note by a parent or carer should be handed to the form teacher or reception.

Please ensure the child’s full name, form, date of absence and reasons for absence, is recorded in the letter, in order to help us make sure that our records are correct.

Prolonged absences due to illness must be accompanied by a doctor’s certificate.

PROCEDURE FOR EMERGENCY CLOSURE OF THE SCHOOL

In the event of unforseen circumstances, GMS would like to remind you of the school’s closure procedure.

  • Information will be posted on the school website.
  • Bucks CC will be notified, they will place the information on their website: http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/education/ They will also notify the local radio stations.
  • A voicemail reporting closure will be put on the main school telephone line  01628 483752 after 7am.
  • Those signed up for ParentMail® will receive a message by email and/or text message.
  • Those who have children who travel on a school coach should contact the Passenger Transport Department at Bucks CC on 01296 383740.
  • As far as possible, staff will place work for students on Show My Homework. Students are expected to complete the work set.
  • GMS will endeavour to make any decision to close by 7.00am.  The decision is based on the conditions in Marlow together with the very different conditions that may exist in High Wycombe and the outlying villages. Please note that the majority of staff do not live within walking distance of the school and this has to be factored in.
  • If the school is closed you should assume that any trips due to go out that day will be cancelled.
  • The default position is always that the school is open unless you are advised otherwise.
