Good afternoon,

We know that winter is one of the peak times for adults and children to come down with mild illnesses such as colds, coughs and sore throats. We wanted to take this opportunity to share resources with parents on key attendance practices, which aid in making judgements about mild illness, as well as wider guidance:  


Is my child too ill for school? - NHS (


The role of the GP in maximising school attendance – BJGP Life


Missing Children, Missing Grades | Children's Commissioner for England (


As ever, if there is any specific support your family needs regarding attendance concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the relevant Key stage offices or directly to our Attendance and Welfare officers [email protected].


Many thanks 

Mrs Machin
