Pinhoe C of E Primary School

Pupil Sickness

If your child is going to be off school, you must inform the school office by 9am on the first day of absence.

Call the school office on 01395 467984. If your child remains off school, medical evidence in the form of a Drs note will be required in order to authorise absences.

There is a new Attendance Policy 2022 which has an expectation that your child will have 100% attendance.

When your child is poorly with an infectious disease, we follow guidance from Public Health England regarding incubation timeframes and also their guidance on how the school and pre school should manage an outbreak. 

Please note that if a pupil is unwell with vomiting and/or diarrhoea, it is important that they remain off school until 48 hours after the last episode. Your cooperation with this will ensure the spread of infection across the school community is minimised. Further information can be found in the website links below. If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the school office.
