Illness and Absence from School

Illness and Absence from School

 

A difficult decision for parents is whether or not to keep your child at home when they are unwell. In reality not every illness requires time away from school, how ever if you keep your child at home it is important to inform us on the first day of your child’s absence.

Here at Harton Primary we ask our parents to use a little common sense when deciding if their child should be absent. The following links provide a range of information and simple guidelines to advise parents on the best course of action for a variety of conditions and health related situations such as treatment for head lice, illnesses and absence form school.
