Illness

Illnessillness

Should your child be unable to attend school for any reason, you are requested to telephone the school office before 09:00 on the first day of absence (a dedicated 24 hour absence reporting extension is available for this purpose). Please send in a letter confirming the reason for the absence when your child returns to school. Any absence not covered in this way becomes an unauthorised absence and under current legislation has to be recorded as such on your child’s end of year report. Please click on the following link for the guidelines we follow with regards to contagious illnesses and how long your child should be kept home from school.
