    If Your Child Is Unwell

    If your Child is Unwell

    If a child appears ill or informs an adult that s/he is feeling unwell, then one of our qualified first aiders will comfort the child. In the event of a child being sick, the first aider will inform the emergency first aider on call who will contact the child’s parent/carer immediately. Similarly, if a child has an accident at school, parents will be informed, either immediately, by telephone or by a letter at the end of the day, depending on the severity of the accident. Parents are always informed if a child bumps his/her head. Minor cuts and grazes are treated by first aiders and all accidents, no matter how minor, are recorded in our Accident Book.


    If your child is ill, please notify the school office as soon as possible. Please call 0208 808 8088 (Option 2) with your child's full name, Class and reason for absence. Upon your child’s return to school, please provide written confirmation of your child’s illness. 


    Current public health guidance in relation to COVID-19 and children's school attendance is as follows.

    • Children who have a high temperature must not attend school until they no longer have a high temperature and are well enough to attend.
    • Where parents decide to test their children, those with a positive COVID-19 test result must stay at home for 3 days after the day they have taken their test and can then return to school as long as they no longer have a high temperature and are well enough to attend.
    • Children do not need to have a negative test result to return.
