Please do not send a sick child to school, but let us know if your child is ill. Please telephone either main School or the Early Years site on the first day of your child's absence.
It is a legal requirement that we keep records of attendance for all pupils. Please contact School/Early Years as soon as possible, if your child will be absent.
If your child has an infection your doctor will advise when it is safe to return to school. In the case of sickness and diarrhoea (as per our Absence Policy) we ask that you keep your child at home for at least 48 hours after their last bout of symptoms, to ensure full recovery before mixing with other children at school. This follows Health Protection Agency guidelines.
In the case of illness or accident whilst at school (unless very trivial) parents will be contacted by telephone. Head injuries will be communicated by a note or telephone call depending on the severity of the injury. Please insure that the school has up to date telephone numbers for such emergencies and that contacts can collect your child if necessary.
If your child needs medication during the school day, for example antibiotics, you are most welcome to come into school to administer these. Please give prior notice to the School/Early Years office that you are doing so. If your child has a particular problem which requires regular medication or specialist help, please make an appointment to discuss this with the Headteacher.
ASTHMA- Children who need inhalers will need to keep one at School/Nursery and take them when required. Children should be trained to use their own asthma medication. All inhalers must be clearly labeled with the child's name. If your child does require an inhaler at School/Nursery, please call into the School or Early Years office to complete the required paperwork.
