Sickness and medication
Please keep your children at home if they are not well enough to attend school.
Colds and sickness bugs spread very rapidly between young children and can cause great distress to a child who needs to be in bed. We would appreciate a telephone call to the office on 01423 886026 on the first morning of illness to notify us of the reason for absence. Any unexplained absences will be registered as unauthorised and recorded on your child’s end of year report.
Parents should let the school know if pupils have any particular medical problems such as diabetes, epilepsy, allergies etc so that an appropriate care plan can be written and put in place.
Wherever possible, please ensure that medicines are administered at home. If a child has been prescribed antibiotics 4 times a day and is well enough to come into school, parents are asked to come in at lunchtime and administer the medication themselves.
Unfortunately, the staff are unable to administer medicines in school but if there are special circumstances, involving long - term medication, parents and carers are invited to come into school to discuss the matter
