What do I do if I am late collecting my child?
If there are changes to collection arrangements, please call the school office on 020 8300 3613 before 3.00pm to ensure the class teacher is informed and the pupil is aware.
In the case of a delay, please call the School Office. The person collecting your child must have the secure password which has been sent in to school.
How long before my child can return to school after an illness?
Children may return to school as soon as they are well enough to do so.
In the case of sickness or diarrhoea, children may return 48 hours after their last episode.
From time-to-time children are sick (vomit) either at home or at school. Unfortunately, it is not possible to distinguish between the causes, and therefore it is essential that the same rule of exclusion applies in all cases of vomiting or Diarrhoea.
In the Health Protection Agency document, “Guidelines for the Control of Infection and Communicable Disease in School and Early Years Settings”, the guidance is:
Diarrhoea and Vomiting exclusion
Diarrhoea and/or vomiting commonly affects children and staff and can be caused by a number of different germs, including viruses, parasites and bacteria. Infections can be easily spread from person to person (by unwashed hands), especially in children. In general, it is recommended that any staff member or child with diarrhoea and/or vomiting symptoms must stay away or be excluded from the school or early years setting until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours (the ‘48-hour rule’) and feel well. Personal hygiene whilst ill must be very strict.
If your child is sick at school, we will ask you or your emergency contact to take your child home. They should not return for 48 hours. We appreciate that this is inconvenient in many cases, and you may not believe your child is ill, but you will appreciate that we do this in all cases, and it should reduce the risk of infection for all children in school. As an example, if your child is sick at lunchtime on a Tuesday, they should not return to school until after lunch on Thursday, provided there have not been any further episodes of vomiting.
Thank you for your understanding with this. Please see the link below the medical policy
What do I do if my child is prescribed medication?
Medicines should only be brought into school when prescribed.
Medication will only be administered if it is 4 times a day, If a child's medicine is three times a day this can be given before school, after school and before bed.
All medicines must be brought to the school office and the correct form completed.
Medicines will only be accepted in the original container/packaging as dispensed by a pharmacist and should include the child’s name, as well as the prescriber’s instructions for administration.
Can I take my child on holiday in term time?
We expect all children on roll to attend school every day during term time, as long as they are fit and healthy enough to do so.
The school will not authorise holidays during term time.
If a child misses school due to a family holiday, their absence will be recorded as unauthorised and possible involvement from the EWO (Educational Welfare Officer).
Can I park at the school?
There is no parent parking at the school. The car parks are for staff use only.
If you must drive to school, please park considerately using one of the local roads.
What do I do if my child is late to school?
If your child is late for school, they must be brought to the school office to sign in.
All late comers will receive a late mark.
Persistent late comers will be reported to the Phase Leader and/or Principal.
