Absence due to Illness
In the event of absence, please let the school know by phoning on the first day of absence before 9:30am, and in writing when your child returns to school. We do have an answer-phone so messages can be left at any time on 01225 776886. Alternatively we can be emailed at email@example.com. Notification of absence is most important for safeguarding and we ask that you comply with this request at all times. If your child is absent and we have not received an explanation, we will attempt to contact you. If we do not receive a reason for absence within 14 days, the absence will be recorded as 'unauthorised'.
Please ensure ALL contact details are up to date so we can contact you immediately should there be an emergency.
If you are unsure as to how long your child should be off school due to infectious illness please refer to the document below for information. There is also some great advice on whether a child is well enough for school in the document below which has been put together by the NHS.
