Pupil Absence

Trying to decide whether or not to keep your child at home when they are unwell can be difficult. In reality not every illness requires time away from school, however if you keep your child at home it is important to inform us on the first day of your child’s absence before 9.20am.

The following links provide a range of information and simple guidelines to advise parents on the best course of action for a variety of conditions and health related situations such as treatment for head lice, illnesses and absence form school.



The Head and staff believe that the links between home and school are of paramount importance as each child continues the process of learning. The Head will aim to see parents / carers  as soon as possible upon request. If this can not be immediately arranged, a meeting will be arranged.  Parents are encouraged to keep in contact with the school on all matters of learning, progress and social development relating to their child.

Parent consultations are arranged each year to enable parents and carers to discuss their child’s progress with the class teacher. There are also assemblies and concerts which families are invited to attend.

All adults may be actively involved in the school and are welcome to help on a voluntary basis, subject to Criminal Record Bureau checks (DBS).
