Abscence and Illnes

As we move into autumn, we feel it is a good time to remind everyone about NHS advice on children’s attendance at school when they are feeling poorly. For bouts of sickness or upset stomach children should be kept at home for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness. If your child shows signs of being unwell, please keep them at home until they are well enough to return to school. Please refer to the “Advice on Illness” page on this blog for advice relating to the exclusion period following various ailments or you can request a paper copy from the office. Thank you for your co-operation and partnership in helping us to maintain a happy, healthy school.
If your child is absent from school it is important that the office is contacted by telephone or email on the morning of absence before 9:30am if possible. This procedure is in place for the safety and security of pupils. You will receive a telephone call or text message if no contact is received. Please inform the school office as soon as possible if your mobile telephone number changes. Thank you
