Illness and Absence
If your child is unwell...
If your child is unwell you should telephone the school absence line on 020 8997 0619 before 8.30am.
If we have not received a message that your child is absent, a member of staff will telephone you to find out where your child is. This is for your child’s safety and to ensure that we know they are safe, so please be understanding if you receive a call from us.
All non-urgent medical and dental appointments should be made in the school holiday period.
If your child needs to attend a hospital appointment, please bring the appointment letter to the school office in advance. We will make a note of the date and time. Please also advise the class teacher so that the lesson can be planned around the appointment. This is to minimise the loss of learning time and avoid disruption for other children in the class.
If you are not sure how long your child should be absent from school due to illness, the document below will provide a guide for you:
