Guidance on common illnesses

As much as we want to see your child in school every day, there are times when they might be unwell. On these days, we appreciate that your child needs to be kept at home to recover and to ensure that the illness doesn't continue to spread. As you can imagine, with 365 children in pretty close proximity, it is hard to avoid passing bugs on but we are keen to limit illness as much as possible. 

Please call the school office or send a message if your child is unwell. By telling us what the illness is we might be able to see patterns in illness to warn others, particularly vulnerable groups. 

The leaflet below might answer some of the questions you have regarding the time scale to keep children off school.
