What do I do if my child is ill?

You should contact school before 8.50am to explain the reason for your child’s absence (0118 9787173). 

If your child is ill he/she should stay at home.  A child should not be returned until 48 hours after a bout of sickness AND diahorrea (where both are present) .

However, your child may return 24 hours after the last bout of sickness OR diahorrea (where only one is present). 

A child who is unwell does not gain anything from being in school and may pass on his/her illness to the rest of the class (including the teacher!) 

Sometimes a child who appears unwell first thing brightens up during the day – if this happens then bring him/her to school as soon as he/she is feeling better.
