How to report an absence at St Matthews Catholic Primary School
Main way – Telephone
At St. Matthew’s we have an automated telephone mailbox for general absences related to illness. Simply leave a message on the mailbox anytime during the morning of the absence, but preferably by no later than 9:15. If there is any issues with the message, the school office will ring you back.
If the absence is more complex and you would prefer to discuss the absence with a member of staff, please contact the school office direct to discuss any concerns.
Alternative Way – Email
If you are unable to telephone the school office with a child’s absence then please email the school office on email@example.com with all the same information (Child’s name, Class, reason for absence.) and the message will be picked up by our admin team.

Please do not use ClassDojo to report class absences unless absolutely necessary.
