School Info.

It is very important for your child to be here every day in order to access the curriculum and to develop and maintain their relationships with teachers and other children.

Of course, if your child is ill then you need to keep them at home, but please send a note or telephone the school on 01902 368144 to let us know.

Children are allowed time away from school during particular religious festivals or periods of observance and very occasionally school may be avoidably closed.

Reasons for all other absences, must be given to the Head Teacher who will make the decision to authorise the absence if appropriate.

If Your Child is Ill

Generally the best thing to do is to keep young children at home.

Sickness or diarrhoea cases should always be kept at home because tummy bugs spread quickly. We recommend a 48 hour period to pass since the last attack before returning to school.

Ask your Doctor about when children can return to school after infectious diseases.

Please inform the school of reason for any absence by telephone or letter

Never send children to school with a temperature or earache.
If children are taken ill at school we will contact you.

It is very important that you leave a telephone number where you can be contacted in case of emergency. If there is any change of number then please inform us immediately.

In no circumstances will children be allowed to leave school to
attend medical or dental appointments without a note.
All children must be collected by an adult if they leave during the school day.
