Sickness Guidance

If your child is unwell, please refer to the link below for goverment guidance. If you are unsure please contact the school office.

Absences - please remember to always contact the office either by email ( or by leaving a message on our absence line (telephone 01708 447 866) by 9am on the first day of your child’s absence.  When leaving a message on the answerphone please clearly state your child’s name, class and the specific reason for their absence.  If your child is unwell, please specify whether this is because they have a cold, a temperature or are feeling sick, etc.

It is our duty to make contact with every parent whose child is absent to check that everything is ok and the family are not in an emergency situation needing assistance. 

If we cannot make contact, we may make a home visit to make sure everyone is ok.
