Reporting the absence of an Arden Sixth Form student should be done ideally via Edulink (before 8:30am), or a message can be left on the Absence Line – 01564-773348 (menu Option 2, then Option 1). Please provide the student’s name, form and reason for absence on your recorded message. Should a parent/guardian not report an absence, then school will make contact to establish why a student is missing. If there is no response, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. Student absences should be reported EVERY DAY of absence.
Any student with an authorised reason to leave school site must scan out (using the ID card provided) upon departure, and if returning back, students must scan themselves back in. Our scanning system records the students that are on site during the school day and is used in the event of a fire. It is in no way linked to the form/class registers and students MUST ensure they have scanned when in school as this is a health and safety requirement.
