Please can we ask you for your support with your child/ren's attendance.
The expectation of the local authority is 95% as a minimum. Whilst we head into the winter months we do appreciate that children are more susceptible to bugs and germs and we do understand that absence in this case is understandable.
We are, however, more than happy to keep children 'soldiering on' by providing medication if that is needed. After all, it's an important lesson to learn as adults, to 'soldier on' when you can!
There is also guidance on recommended periods of isolation in the event of illnesses and this helps to keep transmission to other children, and staff, to a minimum. In the case of vomiting and diarrhoea we ask please for a full 48 hours clear of the last episode before children return to school.
Thank you for your support.
