Absence Procedures

Absence Procedures

Absence of your child must be reported to the school office. Please call and leave a message on our voicemail or speak to a member of staff. When leaving a message please state:

  • Childs name
  • Class they are in
  • Why they are absent.

Children suffering from sickness or diarrhoea must be excluded from the school for a minimum of 48 hours from the last episode of illness. This in line with the national ‘Health Protection for schools, nurseries and other childcare facilities’ from Public Health England.

Further information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/health-protection-in-schools-and-other-childcare-facilities

The link below is an exclusion table which explains if, and how long, a child would need to be away from school if they had a variety of common illnesses.
