If your child becomes ill


If your child is unwell during the night or early morning before Nursery, please keep him/ her at home until the symptoms have cleared completely. Where a child has sickness and diarrhoea they must not attend/ return to Nursery for at least 48 hours. If your child has an infectious disease you must notify the Nursery Class as soon as possible.

If your child is unwell or unable to attend school please contact the school office by telephone on the morning of their absence. If the school has not been notified or contacted regarding a child's absence they will telephone you to confirm the reason for their absence.

Parents/ carers should inform the school if their child is likely to be absent for some time.

If your child becomes ill while at Nursery we will contact you immediately. If we cannot contact you we will contact the emergency contact number given to us at enrolment. Please ensure these numbers are kept up to date. If this proves difficult or speed is essential the Head Teacher or Depute Head Teacher will be responsible for the arrangement of the child going to Yorkhill Hospital for the appropriate treatment.
