Sickness absense

 

Our school follows NHS advice on when children should be kept away from school.

 

 

 

Please telephone the school on the first day of absence to let us know that your child is unwell.

 

In the past, our school operated a 24 hour rule for sickness or diarrhoea. However, we have now changed the policy to follow the NHS advice outlined in the link above, speciflcally

 

'Children with diarrhoea and/or vomiting should definitely be kept off school until at least 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.'

 

Please speak with the School Office if any further clarification is needed. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
