If your child is absent from school or unable to attend on time for any reason, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our reception 020 7241 9600.
We heavily discourage students being taken out of school during term time, however, if you have an unavoidable situation that means it's necessary, please email email@example.com with the reason for your child’s leave during term time at least 5 days beforehand, attaching any evidence or relevant documents you feel necessary.
We will aim to respond within 3 days.
It is not recommended that children and young people are tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional.
If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test, if they can. After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.
Children and young people who usually go to school, college or childcare and who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.
If your child is unwell for any other reason apart from Covid-19 symptoms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 241 9686 on the day of absence before 8:30am to inform the school as to why.
If your child is off for more than one day and not signed off by a GP, the school will need to be informed each day of absence.
If your child falls unwell in school:
In their lesson:
- Your child will need to inform their teacher that they are not feeling well. The teacher will alert a member of Senior Leadership who will attend and escort the unwell student to the medical room.
- Under no circumstances allow the student to make their own way to reception alone or accompanied by another student.
In the corridor or playground:
- Your child will need to alert the nearest adult who will accompany the student to Reception. A member of the Reception Team, or the School Nurse, will call parent/carer and inform, requesting to collect your child as soon as possible. All students who are unwell, for any reason, need to be collected by a parent/carer. Under no circumstances allow the student to make their own way to reception alone or accompanied by another student.
