Reporting an absence

Back to Students

If you need to report an absence such as illness or being late you must contact us as soon as possible.

Phone the colleges main number (01246 500500) and select option 2 for absence reporting. You will either speak to a member of the curriculum admin team or be asked to leave a message.

The information you need to provide includes:

  • Student name and Person Code (where possible)
  • Course title
  • Personal tutor name
  • Reason for absence
  • Predicted length of absence

Where absence is related to an authorised appointment (e.g. doctors or hospital) then the student must bring evidence in to show to the administrator/s for your curriculum area so that this can be processed and recorded.
