There has been a noticeable increase in absence in school these past two weeks, with as many as 33 children off in one day, this is more than a whole class! Please try to keep absence to a minimum. If your child has a minor complaint such as headache, stomach ache, cough, cold or runny nose they can still come to school. Often seeing their friends and joining in the school day can be enough to take your child's mind off these issues. If your child is too ill to be in school we will contact you to take them home.
