My child is ill - how do I report this?
If your child is not well and is unable to attend school please:
- Phone school on the very first day of absence, please call between 8.30 and 9am.
- We log your call immediately and this then becomes an explained absence, therefore we will not need to contact you to gain reason for absence, as we will know your child is safe. This will save the office staff valuable time.
- Please do not report absence by messaging the class teacher via Dojo.
If your child has an infectious illness please contact us immediately. Some of our children are very vulnerable and have conditions where infection could cause a serious problem. Our Administration Officer will always give you informed advice when you ring and illnesses are confidential. If in doubt visit your GP!
A very common infectious illness is sickness and diarrhoea if your child is ill with this please keep your child off school for 48 hours following the last episode.
