Our students have all experienced a significant time away from the classroom. Therefore, we ask parents to consider absences carefully; mild illness is not a valid enough reason to miss a full day's education. If your child has a headache, cold symptoms (and has a negative LFT), is tired or feels anxious, please send them in.
Our medical team can administer pain relief if required, and our pastoral team is always available to speak too; if it is felt that your child would benefit from going home, we will contact you.
Similarly, if your child is absent due to injury, a risk assessment can be undertaken to support and enable their return to school. They are also able to work remotely in one of our quiet spaces if they are unable to move between classrooms.
To report an absence, illness or planned appointment
Please complete the relevant (Absence Today or Future Absence) form in the Operoo Form Library as soon as possible on each day of absence.
In the case of positive Covid results, once you have completed a form and confirmed an anticipated return date, you will not need to contact on each subsequent day of isolation unless the length of absence changes.
