Synergy Multi-Academy Trust is made up of schools, both secondary and primary, from north Norfolk. The Trust was initially established by Reepham High School and College in 2015. Our vision is simple; for all of our schools to work together to provide teaching and learning of the highest quality and for all of them to provide an exceptional range of educational experiences and opportunities.
If your child is absent we ask you to contact the school on 01328 862188, choosing Option 1, between 8.30am and 9.30am.
Messages can be left on the answering machine. If your child is sick, you will need to contact the school for every day that your child is absent. Please state the illness affecting your child and be specific as just ’unwell’ is not enough information for our records. The Office Staff will contact any family who have not informed us on the first day of the pupil’s absence. Unless we hear from you we have to record absence in the register as “unauthorised”. Frequent, lengthy or unexplained absences are followed up by the Pastoral Support Team. In more serious cases this will be referred to the Attendance Team and could result in financial penalties being applied for unauthorised absences that breech Norfolk County Council guidelines, which are adopted by the school.
If your child needs to visit the doctor, dentist, optician or hospital during school time please ensure that the school office is informed in advance and evidence is provided where possible. We ask you, on these occasions, to collect and return children to the school office, to sign them out/in.
These should always be taken during school holidays. If holidays are taken during the school year, these will automatically be unauthorised but the school still requires notification of the leave of absence. Forms are available on the website or from the school office for this purpose
Financial penalties may be applied for unauthorised absences that breech Norfolk County Council guidelines.
