Pupil Illness and absences

The school should be contacted on the first day of the child's illness: this can be done by filling out the form here, ensuring that you give your child's full name and class or by leaving a voice message on the school's answerphone. If your child is absent for several days, or is suffering from a condition which may be contagious, an update is useful. 

The school would normally authorise absence for illness unless there is a pattern or an unusually high level of absence, when we would ask for further evidence such as a doctor's note.

Any children displaying flu-like symptoms should remain at home until all symptoms have passed. Current medical advice, as a result of the pandemic, is that we should continue to send home any children displaying symptoms of flu. Thank you for your understanding.

In line with NHS advice, children suffer either vomiting or diarrhoea they should remain at home for at least 48 hours after the last incident.

If you are in any doubt about your child's health and specific symptoms, please contact your doctor/practise for advice.
