Please contact the school office before 9.15 a.m. if your child is ill and will not be attending school. It is especially important to notify us if the condition is one which might be transmissible to other children. We follow guidance issued by the Health Protection Agency and ask that you keep your child at home for 48 hours after their last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.
