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 as early as possible (by 8.30am) on the first day of absence. Absences can be reported

  • via the Report Absence section on your Parentmail account. Just click onto theĀ Notify Absence link on the menu and complete each section.
  • by phone on 01206 574225. There is an answerphone so messages can be left at any time.
  • by email to admin@north.essex.sch.uk.

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.
