If your child is away from school for any reason, please telephone the school as soon as possible.
Any absence not explained is recorded as ‘unauthorised’. Registers are completed as soon as the children come into school and any child not present when the register is returned to the school office will be marked absent.
If children arrive late they need to go to the school office to let the office staff know they have arrived. Their absent mark will then be changed to a late mark.
Please see below for an infection control guideline for more common ailments/conditions.
Please note that for all sickness and diarrhoea related illnesses, the school would not expect the child to return to school until 48 hours have elapsed since the last episode.
An early return will result in parents being contacted to take their child home.
Headlice are extremely common in close-knit environments such as schools. Please see below to access information on the management of head lice.
From time to time your child may be well enough to attend school but requires medicine throughout the day.
Please see below to access the school’s Medicine Policy giving details of when this is possible and what information we need from you.
We have a number of staff qualified to undertake first aid.
Where your child has been treated by a first aider, he or she may bring home a note giving details of the incident and the treatment to ensure you are informed should further treatment become necessary.
Where a child requires emergency treatment this will be sought by the staff ‘in loco parentis’ and the parents will be contacted.
