Medical Appointments


Dear Parent/Carer,

Where ever possible, please make every effort to avoid making dental or medical appointments during the school day. It is preferred and appreciated unless it is an emergency or unavoidable to arrange these during the holiday periods or at the end of the school day. This will help improve your child’s attendance record and reduce the number of lessons missed.


Most medical appointments do not necessitate a full days absence and it is your responsibility to collect and return your child/children to school once their appointment is over.

Please consider it is also unfair to take siblings out of lessons to attend such appointments that are not their own resulting in lost learning.

Please bring in medical appointment cards/ letters in support of your child/children’s absence.

Help improve Your Child/Children’s Attendance – Every Lesson Counts!

Thank you for your co-operation.


Mrs K.Sheehan

Attendance Development Officer
