Hello. We are the attendance officers at Maidstone Infant School & Nursery & Causton Junior School.

I am Miss Alden-Hollinsworth the attendance Officer at Maidstone I am Mrs Cook the attendance Officer at Causton

Our job is to monitor attendance and lateness. We have regular meetings with  Mrs Girling and the Education Welfare Officer (EWO) to discuss any concerns that we may have regarding attendance. We are always happy to help in any way we can to help you to get your children into school regularly and on time.

Your child’s good attendance is vital in ensuring that he/she is able to receive the education and life choices he/she deserves.  We take attendance very seriously and regularly monitor absence and lateness. We ask that you work with us to ensure your child is at school regularly and on time.

We appreciate that children are ill and ask that you text us on the first day of absence on:-

  • Maidstone Infant Mobile number is 07703 883500

When texting regarding your child’s absence, the following information must be included:-

  • Child’s full name
  • Child’s class
  • Reason for absence

If we have not heard from you by 9.30am we will contact you either by text or phone to find out why your child is not at school.

If for a specific reason, you need to speak to a member of staff, you can call the school office after 9.15am.
