How can an authorised absence system help your school?
A simple yet effective system for recording pupils who are authorised to be absent from school during the day whilst at the same time issuing them with an authorised absence pass.
The authorised absence system enables a school to record all pupils who are temporarily absent from school during the day. Each pupil leaving the school is issued with an absence pass, proving that they have permission to be out of school if challenged by a person of authority. The absence register provides a complete list of all pupils who are/have been absent, including the reasons why.
As each pupil needs to leave the premises, they report to the point where the system is held in the school and hand in any documentation proving their reasons for needing to leave e.g. medical appointment card. The pupil’s details, reason for their temporary absence and an authorising signature are recorded on the absence pass as well as an expected return time.
At the same time as completing this pass, the absence register is automatically updated. This ensures that the school office has an up-to-date register of all pupils who are temporarily absent which is especially useful during emergency evacuations.
