Illness at School

Should your child become ill at school, we have staff trained in First Aid and Paediatric First Aid. Parents are contacted if the sickness prohibits the child from learning.
It is therefore important that the school is notified quickly of any change in telephone numbers / addresses.

If you are unsure if your child is well enough to attend school, have a look at the documents below.



Any child who is displaying symptoms of Covid-19 should not attend school and a test should be requested immediately.
