When should I keep my child off school?

When should I keep my child off school?

Common sense is your best guide when deciding whether your child needs to stay at home. As a general rule, if your child complains of minor ailments (slight sore throat, slight cold or cough, minor aches and pains, slight headache) they should come to school. If their condition worsens during the day, the school will contact you.

 

If your child has a slight ear or tooth ache they should come to school. If pain persists they should see a doctor or dentist.

 

Do not send a child to school with an unexplained rash until you have consulted a doctor.

 

Sickness and Diarrhoea

Your child should not come to school if they have sickness or diarrhoea. Once they have been clear for 24 hours, they should return to school.
