SCHOOL ABSENCE

Our preferred method for reporting absence is an email to absence@patesgs.org for Years 7 to 11, or to sixthform@patesgs.org for Sixth Form; or a message sent through the School Gateway application. For planned absences, please provide a completed absence request form (below); these are also available from Reception.

Absence for a Full Day or MoreAbsence for Less than Half a Day

If the previous methods aren’t possible, please leave a message on the absence line. However, we would prefer an email, as sometimes the telephone messages left are such a poor quality that we are unable to decipher them.

Please can we ask that messages are received by 9am.
