Student Absence

Student absence from school should be reported on the first day of absence to the attendance officer, Mrs Archard. You can report absence by using the email address below, or by telephone to Exeter (01392) 660100 and following the instructions to report student absence. If students are absent for longer than originally expected, please re-advise of the continuing absence.

Please only use email to notify us of illness or other unexpected absence on the day. For advance notification of holiday requests or other requested absence due to family or other commitments, please complete an absence request form and return it to school before the requested absence.

For all other advance requests for absence during term time you will need to complete an absence/holiday request form, available on our Publications for Parents page.

The email address for student absence is: absence@westexe.devon.sch.uk
