Absence

What to do if your child is ill

If your child is unable to attend school please inform us before 8.45 a.m. either by telephone

or e-mail deeplish@focus-trust.co.uk

If we do not receive any information we will telephone you to find out why your child is absent.

What if your child is ill at school

Please keep your child at home if they are not well. Although we do the best we can, there is no comfortable place for children to rest if they do not feel well. If your child is ill we will contact you by phone and ask you to collect your child.

Cuts and grazes resulting from falls at playtime are dealt with by First Aid staff in school, but if hospital treatment should be thought necessary we will contact you immediately. If your child bumps their head, we will send you a note to let you know about the incident,

Please keep the academy office records up to date by telling us if any of the following information changes. Should we need to contact you we can only use the information you provide us with.
• address
• telephone numbers
• named contacts in case of emergency

If we are unable to contact you, staff can act in loco parentis and will contact Social Services for their help and support, if required.
