Absences

If your child is unwell, please call the school office 020 8542 4580 and select option 1 or email enquiries@st-marys.merton.sch.uk to inform the school. When your child returns to school, please provide a letter explaining the absence. If your child has vomitted or has diarrhoea they may not return to school until 48 hours after their last episode.

Absences for holidays during term time are not authorised. There are exceptional circumstances (e.g. wedding, funeral) where an absence may be authorised. Please complete a leave of absence form and return it to the school office. Please speak to Mrs Norville for more information on whether or not an absence will be authorised.
