Following visits from the Area Welfare Officer we have been advised of the necessity for written notification of absence on your child’s return to school even if we have received a message by telephone. Please could you inform the School Office of your child’s illness before 9.30am on the first day of absence. If you do not call then we are required to call you.


If your child has a dental/doctor’s appointment, please provide a note to arrange the early collection of your child.

  • Any length of absence due to illness when a note is provided from the parents within 1 week of the child’s return;
