What to do if your child is ill:
If your child is too ill to attend the Academy, parents/carers should contact the Academy Attendance Office as soon as possible:
by telephone on 01924 821160, Option 1. The telephone system allows callers to leave a message 24 hours a day.
by email on admin@lofthousegate.outwood.com
Please give your child’s name, year group, the reason for the absence, and how long you expect the absence to last.
We ask that you contact us each day that your child is absent unless you have given us an indication of how long the absence will last.
Please speak to Mrs Lindsay Pugh if you would like to discuss your child’s attendance.

What to do if your child has an appointment:

We ask that you make routine medical and other appointments out of school time, where possible. If this is not possible, we require notification in advance.
Please telephone on 01924 821160, Option 1. The telephone system allows callers to leave a message 24 hours a day.
or email on admin@lofthousegate.outwood.com or provide a note from home or appointment letter/card to confirm the appointment.
In most cases, your child should attend the Academy before the appointment and return to the Academy afterwards wherever possible.
