In the event of your child being unable to attend school because they are unwell please call the school office on 01372 452870 before 9.30am.
If your child has vomiting or diarrhoea they should not attend school until 48 hours from the last episode of vomiting/diarrhoea.
The school follows the Health Protection Agency guidance on preventing infection. The following document gives more information about whether you need to keep your child away from school if they have an illness or infection:
Children who are taken ill during the day are looked after by the office staff and if very unwell the parents or carer will be asked to take them home. Should children be unwell before school or the night before it is unwise to bring them to school as this can result in the spread of infection. We operate on the principle that children who attend school are well enough to participate in all school activities including swimming, PE and playtime sessions.
