Attendance

The following documents give you advice and guidance on attendance at school.

Supporting your child's learning

 

You can support your child’s learning in school by doing the following things;

  • Book family holidays during the school holidays.
  • Take your child out of school only in exceptional circumstances.
  • Always ring the school to let us know where your child is and why they are absent.
  • Always encourage your child to attend, as sometimes the child saying they don’t feel well could mean they are just tired.
  • If your child has been ill, encourage them to attend as soon as they are fit and able.
  • Be punctual and set good routines, as persistent lateness will affect their attendance.

Should my child go to school today?

 

Every day Counts

 

Headache, earache and stomach ache

Children with headache, earache or stomach ache can go to school – just let the staff know that they have felt unwell.

Give paracetamol and plenty of fluids to drink.

If headache, earache or stomach ache persist seek medical advice.

High temperature

Give paracetamol and plenty to drink. After paracetamol, if your child feels better, bring them in to school.

If the child’s high temperature continues for 3 days or more, seek medical advice.

Coughs and colds

Children should be given paracetamol, plenty of fluids to drink and can be sent to school.

If your child is asthmatic, remember they may need their blue inhaler more often.

Flu and swine flu

Children should go back to school when recovered – this is usually about 5 days.

Sore throat, tonsillitis and glandular fever

Children should be given paracetamol, plenty of fluids to drink and can be sent to school.

Diarrhoea and vomiting

Children can return to school 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.

Measles

Children should return to school 4 days after the rash has STARTED.

Chicken Pox

Children should return to school 5 days after the rash has STARTED.

German measles

Children should return to school 6 days after the rash has STARTED.

(Let school know as there may be pregnant staff members).

 

School decides whether or not an absence is authorised. You may be asked to provide medical evidence to support your child’s absence.

If your child has 90% attendance over a school year they will have missed half a day a week. If your child has 90% attendance over 5 school years they will have missed half a year of school.
