Please do not send your child to school if he/she is feeling unwell as we have limited facilities for the care of children who unwell, at best, these facilitate emergency or temporary “holding” care.  In our experience, children who are ‘off colour’ in the morning rarely improve and invariably become worse in the close confines of a classroom.  If you believe your child to be feigning illness, please contact the class teacher so that the problem may be discussed and the cause identified without delay.  If you are not sure of the appropriate infection/contagion time factors with regard to keeping your child away from school, please seek medical advice.
