If your child is unable to attend school please inform us as soon as possible. It is important for us to confirm that your child is safe at home. Your child should not be removed from school without permission. Dental appointments etc. should, if at all possible, be arranged out of school hours. If you need to collect your child from school during the day, for whatever reason, please ensure that you exit from the office area and sign him/her out.
If your child is ill please avoid sending him/her to school whenever possible as viruses can spread through a class very quickly. If a child has had sickness and/or diarrhoea please do not send them to school until they have been symptom free for at least 24 hours.
The Local Authority, the Area Health Authority and the teaching profession have agreed that children suffering from infections and taking antibiotics should, in most cases, remain at home.
