Illness and Infection
If there is the need for an unavoidable absence please inform school as soon as possible, preferably on the first day, by telephone or e mail, explaining the reason. When your child returns we do, by law, require written notification of the reasons for the absence. This could be by letter or by completion of an absence formwhich can be sent in with your child. If your child is unwell whilst they are at school we will contact you and ask you to collect them. It is important that contact details are kept up to date with school.
Please notify us immediately if your child is diagnosed with any new allergies or a long term health issues.
Should children have an accident any injuries will be treated, details recorded and, in the case of a bumped head a note will be given to the child to take home. In the event of a serious accident, you will be contacted immediately. The school has several first aiders.
Medicines and Accidents
The only medicine regularly administered in school is long-term medication prescribed by a doctor for conditions such as asthma, diabetes and acute allergies. A form will need to be completed at the School Office or can be downloaded from here and brought into school completed. Please note that:
- Medicines will only be accepted from parents, with a completed form
- No other medicines [including throat lozenges] are allowed in school
