My Child is ill - What should I do?

If your child is unwell please telephone the school as soon as possible. If your child has been sick, they must stay at home for 48 hours. You will not need to ring again during this period.


If your child is unwell with an illness other than sickenss you will need to contact school every day that the child is absent.


For instances such as chicken pox or more serious illness it is acceptable to ring and let us know on day 1 how many days you think the absence will last.


Please keep us informed as much as possible.
