When to Contact School

Please note that all time critical messages to us need to be made by phone and not email. An example of this would be any changes to end of day arrangements (school office telephone number 01691 830621).

Changes in dropping off and picking up your child

It is essential that we are kept informed about your arrangements for dropping off your child in the morning and picking them up at the end of the school day. Please contact the school office by telephone (01691 830621) by 9.00am where possible if there are changes to the end of day arrangements for your child. If your child is going to be collected by someone who does not normally collect them, a person who is unknown to school or another parent, please notify us as soon as possible.

Please do not email us regarding changes to end of day arrangements in case your email is not picked up. Please telephone us to notify us of any changes. If Miss Morris is unable to answer the telephone, please leave a message and she will call you back.

Absence from school because of illness

If your child is absent from school because of illness, please telephone or email us to let us know the reason before 9.30am on the morning of the absence. If your child is absent for more than one day, please notify us each morning to keep us updated.

Please note that if your child is suffering from sickness and/or diarrhoea, they will need to remain off school for 48 hours after the last period of sickness and/or diarrhoea. This follows the Public Health England Guidance on Infection Control in School and Other Childcare Settings.

Medical appointments/authorised absences

We appreciate that it is not always possible to book medical appointments outside of the school day. If your child does need to attend an appointment, please let Miss Morris know in advance of the appointment. Please also provide proof of the appointment (e.g. appointment text/card, hospital letter). Failure to do this may result in the absence being marked as unauthorised.
