Illness Procedure

If your child is not well enough to attend school, please call or email the school office by 9am.
 
Good Health is a contributory factor to progress in school so please make sure that they are well enough to return. When a child has experienced sickness or diarrhoea, they should not return to school until 48 hours after the symptoms have stopped. This is to prevent the spread of infection.
 
Generally if children are sufficiently ill to need medication, they should be at home.
However, medication prescribed by a doctor (typically if a course of antibiotics has to be completed) will be given to children if it is brought to school in the original container and clearly marked with the name and instructions. We cannot administer any non-prescribed or alternative medicines.
 
Parents will be asked to complete a consent form which can be downloaded here.
