What to do if your child is ill

Children enjoy coming to school and we have good rates of attendance. If your child is not well enough to attend school please let the office know by phone on 01206 574225 or email to admin@north.essex.sch.uk. There is an answerphone so messages can be left at any time.

Please ensure that your child is fully recovered before returning to school. In cases of diarrhoea and vomiting illness it is necessary to have at least 48 hours from the last episode of diarrhoea or vomitting before returning to school to avoid passing bugs to others. The school can advise on communicable diseases.

Further advice can be obtained by contacting the School Health Advisor on 01206 372300 or see the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service website for more information.
