Should I keep my child off school?

Your child’s absence is vital in order that they make the best proposed commitment in school. However, we know there are times when your child is not well enough to be in school because of illness, therefore we ask that you phone the school before 9.15am on the first day of their illness and maintain regular contact while your child is off.
