It is critically important that children attend school everyday unless too ill to do so. Unless your child has had sickness or diarrhoea (in which case they need to have 48 hours off school to avoid the spread of nasty bugs) please make every effort to bring your child into school every day.Typically, mild colds and coughs should not prevent a child from attending school.
Children must attend school regularly and on time during term time. Your child can only miss school if:
they are too ill to go to school
the school has authorised the absence due to exceptional circumstances.
If you do not get permission and you take your child out of school, this will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.
