Absence and illness

Reporting absence

If your child is unable to attend school please contact us before 9am on the first day of illness on our absence hotline T: 01904 806635 and make us aware of the symptoms/diagnosis so that we can consider if we need to take any further action within school. We may contact you further if we need any additional information to clarify the situation. Please do not hesitate to contact school should you wish to discuss your specific circumstances further.

We acknowledge that there are occasions when it is best that a child refrain from school to both promote a quick recovery and limit the spread of any infection. The school will always follow the latest published guidance when dealing with any illness or infection. The guidance below is provided by Public Health England and forms the basis of procedures in school.

If your child is ill please use the following information to assist you in deciding how to proceed in relation to attendance at school.
