General illness e.g. commom cold
The advice for children who are suffering with general cold symptoms should stay at home until they feel better.
It is recommended that children should remain off school if they are generally unwell or have a fever, that is not COVID related.
Diarrhoea and Vomiting
Children with general sickness such as a stomach bug or diarrhoea should follow the usual 48 hour guidance of non-attendance at school.
Parents should inform the school office if their child is unwell, for any reason, by 9am.
As part of our safeguarding duty the school will contact any parent whose child has not attended school. This is in line with ‘Procedures for following up absence’ section in the main Attendance document.
