How to report your child absent

Dear Parents/Carers,

We’re pleased to announce that Thornhill Primary is introducing a new, more efficient and
secure system for reporting your child’s absence due to illness, called Studybugs.

Please download the free Studybugs app, or register on the Studybugs website, and use it to
tell us whenever your child is ill and unable to attend school.

Get the app or register now (

Top 3 reasons to use Studybugs

1. It’s integrated with our systems so we know right away if your child is unaccounted for.

2. It’s quick and easy to register and use and automatically reminds you to keep us posted.

3. You’ll be helping the NHS and other public health organisations improve children’s health.

Thanks for your co-operation
