Is your child sick?



Your child can not attend if he/she

  • has a high temperature
  • has a contagious illness
  • has sickness & diarrhoea
  • needs mum or dad's TLC

If your child is ill, the best place is for them to be tucked up in their own bed. This day will still be charged.


*****If you need me to administer medication, full details are required in writing.  Please complete our Medical consent form.


If my child is off school due to illness, full details will be given to parents - so you can make an informed decision.
