Is my child too ill for school?

Working together to improve school attendance

Children frequently fall over; catch horrid bugs from other children, have headaches or suffer tummy problems.

Please use links below for NHS guidelines on how to treat and what to look for remembering if in doubt or if your child’s condition worsens then please take to see your GP.

School policy is that children who have had sickness and diarrhoea should not return to school until a clear period of 24 hours has passed.
