Absence/Illness

If your child is absent, please inform the office as soon as possible on (01825) 762827 and press 1 for absences. Please leave a brief reason for the absence.

All medication must come through the school office and a parental consent form completed. Without a signed consent form we are unable to administer any medication.

All medication (including asthma inhalers) must be in the original box.

Coronavirus

Follow the NHS advice on symptoms and how to help stop germs like coronavirus spreading. See the UNICEF guide for parents on talking to your child about cornonavirus.

Normally your child should attend school if they only have a minor illness. The school will send them home if they think it is necessary. Use this NHS guide to see what illnesses may require you to keep you child away from school under normal circumstances.

We respectfully remind you that if your child has been absent due to diarrhoea and/or vomiting, they should not return to school until 48 hours from last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.

Is my child too ill for school? It can be tricky deciding whether or not to keep your child off school when they're unwell. There are government guidlines: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/

If you do keep your child at home, it's important to phone us on the first day. If your child is well enough to come to school, but has an infection that could be passed on, such as a cold sore or head lice, please let us know.

Head bumps

We use bright orange wristbands for head bumps throughout the school. If your child comes home wearing one of these, please check their bag for a letter that will have more details.

Medicines

If your child is given medicine or used their inhaler during the school day, they will come home wearing a bright green wristband. This will have their name, date, time, medicine, dose and name of staff member who gave the medicine.

ParentPay

You can pay for school dinners and trips using ParentPay. Simply follow the link: https://www.parentpay.com/

Each child has a login and password. If you need to receive yours again, please ask at the office.

You can also choose your school dinner on ParentPay. A step by step guide is available for you here.
