Illness & Absence

From time to time pupils do get sick so we understand if time off is needed for a child to return to full health. For the sake of all our pupils, those who have suffered an infectious illness should not return to school until first satisfying us that they are no longer infectious.

If your child is unable to attend school due to illness parents/guardians must inform the school as soon as possible, ideally before 9am.

If your child has a medical or other appointment during the school day please give a copy of the appointment letter to the school office as soon as you are aware of the appointment.

We would politely ask that pupils who have been physically sick, do not return to school for 48 hours.

A written reason is required from parents for a pupil’s absence from school or inability to complete homework.
