Absence Due to Illness

When a child is not able to attend school due to illness, it is the expectation that parents will notify the school on each day the child is absent. This should be by telephone in the first instance. The school endeavours to contact parents / carers in the event of an unexplained absence.


Medical Conditions/Allergies

If your child has a medical condition or suffers from allergies, please inform the school immediately. Dependent upon the nature of the condition/allergy we may need to complete an Individual Healthcare plan for your child.


Medicines in School

If your child requires medicine in school, it must be brought to the office. Parents/carers must complete a form giving permission for the medicine to be administered by a member of staff. Medicines will not be given to children without written consent from the parent/carer.

First Aid

There may be occasions when your child needs to visit the medical room during the school day. Your child will be assessed by a trained first aider using the information provided by the child. Based on this information, their illness or injury will be treated accordingly. If the member of staff assessing your child feels it is necessary, a phone call may be placed to a parent for advice or to inform you that your child is unwell and needs to be collected.


Sickness and/or Diarrhoea

Medical advice states that children who have been suffering from sickness and/or diarrhoea should be kept off school until they have been symptom free for 48 hours in order to prevent infection of other children.

School Information

(Updated 10 September 2021)

Dear Parents & Carers,

You may be aware that we have had a positive case identified within Y5 at the end of his week (10.09.21). We have informed the parents in the year group concerned and the local authority as well as the school’s governing board. The current operational guidance issued by the government does not require us to take any further action and so we will continue to monitor the situation. Children in the affected year group should continue to come to school unless they are displaying symptoms.  Many schools in the area have now had cases and it seems that with the number of cases rising nationally we are likely to see an increase ourselves over the coming months.

If your child displays any symptoms please arrange for a test as soon as possible. Information and advice can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/

We are continuing to ensure increased ventilation around the school, as well as regular hand washing and cleaning of tables and equipment.
