Attendance

Every school day counts…attend today, achieve for a lifetime!

The attendance target for St George's is 97% because we know that a good attendance is one of  the keys to successful schooling.

 

Illness

On occasions children will be ill and at times so unwell that they cannot attend school. However, none of us want children to miss any aspect of their education if we can avoid it. A general guidance would be that if the child is vomiting, has diarrhoea, has an infectious or notifiable illness, or is running a temperature at over 100 degrees Fahrenheit then they should be at home. A child must not return to school for 48 hours if they have had sickness or diarrhoea.

Medicines can be administered in school. A letter is required with details of dosage. However, antibiotics that are be taken 3 times a day will not be administered.

If the child has a sore throat or cold, they should be in school. We will always phone you if he/she is unfit to stay or you may consider the morning only and see how it goes.

 

 

Reporting Pupil Absence

If a child is absent parents must:

  • Contact the school as soon as possible on the first day of absence. Telephone number 01905 25841. If the office is closed you will have the option to leave a message. Every half day absence from school has to be classified by the school (not the parent/carer), as either AUTHORISED or UNAUTHORISED. It is therefore very important that you give a reason for your child's absence.
  • Parents can also call into school and report to the office, who will arrange for a member of staff to discuss the absence if necessary.
