Illness and Absence


If your child is ill, please phone school to let us know and then confirm in writing when they return to school.

Please note that children should not return to school within 48 hours of suffering sickness or diarrhoea.

If your child is ill in school you will be contacted and asked to collect him/her as soon as possible. On arrival, please see the Secretary who will arrange for you to meet your child and sign your child out.  


Medical / Dental Appointments

For medical appointments, please inform the office in advance of the date and time you will be collecting your child and also if they will still require a lunch should they be arriving late after a morning appointment.



Should the need arise for your child to be absent from school with prior knowledge you will need to complete an Exceptional Leave of Absence request form obtained from the school office or the website. This is then submitted anonymously to a panel of governors who use LA guidance to decide if the request is recorded as an ‘Authorised’ or ‘Unauthorsied’ absence in your child’s attendance record.
