Sickness & Reporting Absence
We have had lots of children off this week with sickness bugs and coughs and colds.
Be assured we are doing our best in school to slow the spread of germs, with lots of cleaning and additional handwashing! Please be reminded however, that you can do your part in stopping the spread of sickness bugs by not returning your child to school too soon. Our school policy is that children should not return until 48 hours after their last episode of sickness or diarroeah.
If your child has sickness and diarroeah, and is likely to be off more than the 48 hour period, it is important you contact us to inform us. Equally, if your child is off with an illness other than sickness, it's important to call us EVERY DAY to update us on your child's condition.
If we believe the illness is not legitimate, and there is another reason for absence we may conduct a home visit.
There's so much going on in Knowle West!
The Knowle West Alliance and Knowle West Media Centre, along with many other charities and business, work together within our community to make it a inclusive and inviting place to be.
