If your Child is Unwell

At Sherwell Valley we operate a system of First Day Reporting. 

If your child is taken ill at school or suffers an accident, it is vital that we are able to contact someone. Please give serious thought to the emergency telephone numbers which you entered on your admission form.

Please let us know immediately of changes to any address and/or telephone numbers.

If your child is going to be away, please ring the school between 8:00am and 8:30am on the first day of absence, so that we know why he/she is not here. We need to know that your child is safe and with you. If your child is absent – and you have not rung in to tell us – we will assume he/she is at risk and will inform the relevant authorities.

Often, on the third day of absence, a welfare phone call may be
made to find out how the child is and their likely return to school date.

In the event of diarrhoea and vomiting, we insist that your child remains away from the school for 48 hours after they have last been poorly. This helps to prevent the spread of infection.

If your child requires medication during school hours you will need to complete and return the following

Administration of Medicines in School Form
