Health and Medical Concerns

Illness

If your child is absent, please telephone the office before 9.10am to let us know. This is to ensure that we fulfil our responsibilities in regard to pupil’s safety. You can leave a message on our answerphone if you wish to ring early before the office staff are in. If no call is received then the school will telephone the parents to find out why the pupil is absent. Messages can also be sent via ParentMail; once your child is registered at the school you will be given an account to register and messages can be sent from your mobile, iPad, tablet etc. There is no charge to parents.

We must be able to contact you if your child is taken ill at school. Please ensure that we have a telephone number where you can be reached during the day, and also another number for a relative or friend who will act on your behalf if we cannot contact you. If you move or change your telephone number, please do not forget to let us know.

Other Absence

Parents are requested to ensure all medical and dental appointments are made for outside school hours where at all possible. It is accepted that this may not always be possible, but please do try to keep them to a minimum. If your child has an appointment in school hours please can you bring the appointment card / letter to the office.
