Accident and Illness

Report your child's absence

If your child is away because of illness or other reasons it is necessary to report absence on the first day on our answerphone or by email and provide a letter on his or her return. All infectious diseases must be notified.


Prior to giving medications, a permission form must be completed and signed by a Parent / Guardian.  Pupil’s asthma pumps and other medications are kept in a first aid cupboard. The school office has an emergency asthma inhaler and emergency epipen that will be used if necessary, provided parental agreement has been received.    If your child requires antibiotics four times a day, a dose can be left with the school office staff accompanied by written instructions.

Sickness and/or Diarrhoea

When a child is absent due to vomiting and/or diarrhoea, please ensure that he/she is symptom free for at least 48 hours before returning to school.

Please refer to our Trust Policy 'Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions'.
