Illness absence


If your child is absent from school due to illness please contact the school office as early as possible to advise.


We operate a 48 hour exclusion policy for children with sickness or diarrhoea; your child should only return to school 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea. This helps us stop the spread of illness in school. Please ensure your child always washes their hands after using the toilet and before eating.


Administering medicine in school


Please speak to the school office if prescribed medicine is required to be administered during school hours. Further details are available in the 'Administering medicines at school' policy.

School Health Nursing Service


Your local school health nurse service works in state schools across Oxfordshire. Newsletters will be circulated more frequently during lockdown, where most children are at home. The school nursing team are still available for advice and support on any health worries you have. Please see below for links the newsletters.
