We take the safeguarding of our children very seriously and it is important that we know their
whereabouts throughout the school day.

If your child is unwell and not fit to attend school, please let us know by ringing or calling to the
office, preferably by 09:10 and leaving a message on the automated system.

Similarly, if your child is going to be late, please let us know as soon as possible. They will need to
be signed by an adult at reception.

Medicines in School

Under certain circumstances it may be necessary for children to receive medication during the school day: 

· In cases of long term complaints or chronic illness e.g. asthma, diabetes etc

· Cases where children are recovering from short term illness and are well enough to return to school but are still receiving a course of antibiotics, prescribed by a doctor four times a day only

All medication must clearly state the child's full name on the Pharmacy label attached to the bottle and box. Medication will be given only once during the school day.


Medicine must be signed in at the school office each day by a parent/carer and collected by them at the end of each day. Medicines cannot be given to children to take home.

All other medicines can be given by either a parent themselves, or another designated adult, during the school day. Please call at the school office to do this.

Leave of Absence

Guidance for parents – please consider the following before making a request:

The government have stated that Headteachers can no longer authorise leave of absence in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This is not an automatic right and will not be
granted during SAT’s, for example.

Should this request not be granted, time taken will be classed as unauthorised absence and will
automatically appear on the pupil’s record and will also affect our statistical report to the DfE.

The completed Leave of Absence form should be returned to school prior to the date for which the
leave of absence is requested.

Leave of Absence forms are available from school reception.
