King Edward VI Important Information
King Edward VI Balaam Wood Academy operate a First Day Contact system.
If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason at all then you must contact the school on the first day of your child’s absence on the telephone number below:
Switchboard: 0121 464 9901
If you fail to contact the school, and they cannot contact you, your child’s absence will then be recorded as ‘unauthorised’ and the Attendance Manager will investigate.
King Edward VI Balaam Wood Academy have a duty of care once your child is on roll.
If we do not know why your child(ren) are absent and are concerned by this unknown absence then the Attendance Manager will visit you at home.
If your child cannot be traced, then this is a serious concern. School staff may then have no choice but to contact the police and report that this child is ‘missing’.
This is why First Day Contact is very important.
Thank you for your co-operation.
