What to do if your child is unwell

If your child is unwell you should telephone the school absence line on 0208 866 9836 by 9:30am.  Please contact the school every day your child is absent.


If we have not received a message that your child is absent, a member of staff will telephone you to find out where your child is.  This is for your child’s safety and to ensure that we know they are safe, so please be understanding if you receive a call from us.


If you are not sure how long your child should be absent from school due to illness, the document below will provide a guide for you.
