If your child is ill during term time, please inform the school either by telephone (contact details here) or verbally before 9.15am on the first day of absence. If we do not receive a call, we will try to telephone home to ensure your child’s safety. If this is not possible, please send a written note explaining the absence when your child returns to school.

In the case of sickness or diahorrea children should remain at home for a clear 48 hours after the symptoms have ceased. If both symptoms are present the “curfew” is 72 hours.

Medicine

Please hand medicines to the office manager or another member of staff for safe keeping. You will be asked to complete and sign an “Authority to Administer Medicine” form as we are not permitted to administer medicines without written authority stating the correct dosage.
