Whilst we encourage good attendance here at St Lawrence’s, we understand that occasionally children will be too unwell to attend school.
In this instance:

 

    • We request that you telephone or email the school by 9.30am on the day that your child is to be absent.
    • We ask that you tell us why your child is not attending school and when they are likely to return.
    • If your child is absent from school for more than one day, we ask that you contact the school every day to confirm this.

 

Tel: 01926 812447 (there is an answerphone)

 

We follow the Public Health Agency guidance on infection control and for certain conditions we ask that children are kept away from school for a specific length of time. Details of specific conditions can be found here: Guidance on infection control in schools poster.

 

With regard to incidences of vomiting, we ask you to use your judgement as to whether the sickness is a one off episode or a vomiting illness.  As a guideline we would define a vomiting illness as being sick more than once in a 12 hour period.

 

If you’re unsure whether your child should be kept away from school or not, please contact the school office, who will be happy to advise.
