Parents - Illness, Accidents and signing out
Illness, Accidents and Signing Out
Parents must communicate with the school every time a child misses even half a day. If your child is ill you should telephone the school before 8.40am on 020 7485 8515 and when prompted by the automated system, select option 1 to report your child’s absence. Please include your child’s name, year and tutor group and the reason for their absence. This must be done for every day your child is off, unless a doctor’s note/letter is provided to cover an extended period of time.
If your child is unwell or has an accident they must tell a teacher straight away. Depending on the nature of the illness/accident your child may be sent to the school office where there is a first aid room. If your child is too ill to remain in school, the primary parent/carer will be contacted to either collect their child or give permission for them to make their own way home.

Students required to have medication in school
We require written requests from parents/carers to hold medication for their child in the school office. Please download and complete the Parental Agreement for School to Administer Medicine form. The completed form should be given to the school office at the same time as their medication is brought in.
Medical/dental appointments should be made outside school hours. If this is not possible and your child must leave school during the day for any reason then please send a letter or put a note in your childs’ student planner in advance of the date.
