If your child is away from school for any reason, please telephone the school as soon as possible. Any absence not explained is recorded as ‘unauthorised’.
Registers are completed as soon as the children come into school and any child not present when the register is returned to the school office will be marked absent.
If children arrive late they need to go to the school office to let the office staff know they have arrived. Their absent mark will then be changed to a late mark.
First aid in school
We have a number of staff qualified to undertake first aid. Where you child has been treated by a first aider for any cut, graze, bump or bruise, you will receive a text message from the school office.
Where children have bumped their head and there is a visible mark or swelling, parents may be telephoned and/or sent a text message with advice given on follow-up treatment.
Where a child requires emergency treatment, this will be sought by the staff ‘in loco parentis’ and parents will be contacted.
Management of Headlice
Head lice are extremely common in close-knit environments such as schools.
Please see below to access information on the management of head lice.
