If your child is unwell

We know that from time to time, your child may feel unwell.
Please notify the school office if your child is ill and will not be able to come to school.
 
If you feel they are 'under the weather' but well enough to attend school (provided they have not vomited), please notify the class teacher via the school office if you're unable to speak to them directly. 
 
If your child is off due to vomiting or diarrhoea, they should not return to school until at least 48 hours after their last episode or sickness.
 
Children who may become unwell at school will be checked by a first aider and if we feel they need to go home, we will contact you on the emergency contact numbers you have supplied. Please ensure your contact details are always up to date.
 
If your child has a more serious injury or head bump/injury at school, we will contact you to inform you.
