If your child is absent from school, please telephone the school on the first day of absence to enable an authorised absence to be recorded in the register.

It is essential that we have an emergency phone number. This will enable us to contact you quickly if your child becomes ill at school.

If your child is absent from school due to sickness or diarrhoea, they must remain off school until they have been clear of the symptoms for 48 hours.

Please let us know of changes of address and telephone numbers at home and work as soon as possible.
