Children suffering from infectious diseases are not allowed to attend school for certain periods.

We ask that you please keep to these time scales to ensure that the school can run effectively and with the least disruption to other pupils. Please see NHS guidance for more information and always contact the school if you are unsure: 

Is my child too ill for school

Medicines at School 

It is the school’s policy that medicines or tablets are not brought into school, but we can administer prescribed medications when the dosage to be administered is four or more times within the day. Medical forms have to be filled in and are available from the school office. Children with asthma should keep inhalers at school to use on demand.  Children with allergies should keep antihistamine at school to use if required.

All medicines must be brought to the school office, please do not hand medicines to your child’s teacher.



Cuts and grazes requiring First Aid are dealt with in school; parents will be called in the event of more serious incidents. It is vital that we have the correct contact telephone number for parents and relatives in the case of an emergency. Please let us know immediately if there are any changes to your contact details. 

In the event of a serious accident the school would request an ambulance and while the parent is being contacted a member of staff would accompany the child to hospital.
