Check contact details & absence reporting arrangements – December 2022

Dear parent/carer

Please check your contact information in Edulink

With the onset of cold weather and a likely rise in the number of winter illnesses, please could I ask you to check your contact details on the Edulink app?  We need up to date information, especially email addresses and phone numbers, should we need to contact you if your child falls ill during the day, or if school is forced to close due to adverse weather.

Checking your details is very easy.  Once you have logged into the app, click the ‘Update Information’ button as shown below.

Reporting student absences

If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please report their absence via the Edulink app.  Click the ‘Absence Reporting’ bell icon and provide a reason for absence.  Our phone lines are very busy in the morning, so leaving a message using Edulink helps ensure the message goes quickly to the correct team in school.

If you need help accessing Edulink, please email

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
