Child Sickness and Medication

If your child is unwell, please inform the school office as soon as possible.  The school office opening hours are 8.30am until 4pm.  You can also contact the office outside of these hours by emailing  


Please keep them at home until he or she has recovered. All children who are in school will be expected to play out at break and lunchtime. If your child has any chronic health problem we are, of course, always willing to help.


If your child has sickness or diarrhoea please keep them off for a 48 hour period following the LAST incidence of sickness or diarrhoea.


Please let us know of any recurring problem, such as asthma, allergies or epilepsy and advise us of what treatment to give in an emergency. We will make arrangements in school to provide for such cases. Forms authorising us to give treatment are available in the school office.

Prescription medicines will be given at lunch time where the dosage is four times a day. All administration of medicine is recorded. You must hand in the medicine at the office and complete a consent form, children must not have responsibility for handing in medication.
