Sickness and Absences

Meavy School runs a policy of ‘first day calling’. This means that if your child does not attend school we will give you a quick ring after registration to see how things are.

If your child is unwell and going to miss school that day, please telephone the school before 0900 and leave a message either with the admin team or on the answerphone. We ask that you then phone to confirm the absence on any subsequent days. If your child has had sickness and/or diarrhoea, they will need to remain off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.

Contact details

Please keep your contact details up to date. It is very important that any changes of telephone and mobile numbers for all contacts are given to the office as soon as they change. It is vital that we are able to reach you in an emergency situation or if your child is unwell.

Late collecting

If you are going to be late collecting your child, please telephone the school.  We do not let children leave with any other adult unless we have had direct instructions from their parent or carer. We will never leave a child on their own. If you are going to be held up for any longer than 15 minutes, please let us know and we will be happy to put your child into the After School Club. There will be a charge for this from the club.
