Please do not send a sick child to school, but do let us know if your child is ill. Please telephone school on the first day of absence. If your child is off for longer than originally anticipated, then please send a note with your child when they return to school. If we do not receive any message from you, then your child will be marked with an unauthorised absence. If we do not receive any message on the first day of illness we will contact you by telephone. Featherbank has a very good attendance record and we would welcome your support to sustain this achievement.
If your child has an infection, your doctor will advise you when it is safe to return to school. In the case of sickness and diarrhoea we recommend at least 48 hours clear of symptoms before returning to school.
