What should I do if my child is ill?
If your child is ill you must inform the school on the first day of absence by 8.30am and every day after, by calling the school office on 01442 871231 and press 1 to either speak to a member of the office staff or leave a message. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. In all cases you must tell us:
- Your child's name
- Your child's class
- The reason for their absence
Most common ailments DO NOT require pupils to be absent from school. If in doubt please send your child in and a trained first aider will assess your child if required. The school will contact you if they think your child needs to go home.
If your child has a specific contagious condition that could be passed on to other children or staff, keep your child at home and contact your GP.
