What do I need to do if my child is poorly and cannot attend school?

Unless your child is genuinely ill, there should never be any discussion about whether or not a child will be going to school on that day.

Parents should give their children a positive attitude towards education and school from the earliest opportunity. Please contact the school on the first day of your child’s illness. The school will have their own arrangements for how this should be done. Medical appointments should be made out of school hours wherever possible.
