Regular and punctual attendance is crucial to each child’s educational development, and at River Tees Multi-Academy we recognise our part in helping parents to meet their legal obligations in this respect. We operate a ‘first day Call’ system, if your child can not attend because of ill-health, or for another reason parents are asked to ring the school on the first day of your child’s absence and send a note to the class teacher on their return giving an explanation of the absence. We must report individual instances of unexplained pupil absence to the local Authority, this is then classed as ‘unauthorised absence’. We are also obliged by law to monitor and report late attendance at school.
If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, contact our main Reception on 01642 213799.
Contact with Parents
We keep in regular contact with parents through weekly phone calls. Parents are also welcome to contact the school if they want to discuss their child’s learning.
We also hold regular parent consultations to discuss progress.
Adverse Weather Conditions
During the winter months when the weather is severe if you are unsure about the school being open, we recommend the following:
Check the school website.
Check local radio stations, TFM and Radio Tees.
The school also operates a parent text service in which we send any information via text message. Please make sure the school has your mobile telephone number.
