Absence reporting

Regular attendance is crucial to children's educational development and at Milford Infants' School, we recognise our part in assisting parents to meet their legal obligations. Please ensure your child arrives at school on time (8.40-8.50am) every morning as late arrivals can be recorded as an unauthorised absence on your child’s attendance record.


Parents are asked to follow the following procedure when a child is absent through illness:


1 Please telephone/contact the school before 9.15am on your child’s first day of absence to report your child's illness. You are also able to email via absence@milford-


2 On their return to school please send a brief note.


3 Give written or verbal notice of dental or medical appointments during school time to the teacher or school office.


For reassurance that the children are safe, we will call to find out why a child is absent, if we do not hear from you first. For this reason and for emergencies please ensure that we have up to date telephone numbers. If we are very concerned about family safety we will visit the house or ask the police to carry out a welfare check.
