Sickness absence

When your child is ill . . .

 

Please be aware that, should your child be absent from school through illness, you must report it by 9.10 am, otherwise it will be an unauthorised absence.

 

You may report it in person, by telephone (01473) 831556 or in writing.

 

It is a government requirement that we hear from you each day of your child’s absence.

 

If your child is suffering from sickness and/or diarrhoea, they must not return to school until 48 hours AFTER their last bout of sickness/diarrhoea.

 

We recommend that you make doctor/dentist appointments out of school hours, where possible, and urge you NOT to take your children out of school for holidays.
