Illness in School

If your child is ill please inform the school as soon as possible.  There is an answerphone facility to leave a message and we ask that you contact us before  9.15am.


If they are suffering with sickness and/or diarrhoea all children must be away from school for a minimum of 48 hours following their last bout of illness.


To help please find below information about common childhood illnesses which gives guidance as to whether a child should be attending school.
