Absence requests and illness

Reporting Illness

If your child is unwell or will be absent from school please inform the school office on 020 8949 1743 before 8.45 am or by emailing the school office chjoffice@chj.rbksch.org  Any unexplained absence will result in a telephone call from the school.

Extended absence will require a doctor's certificate.

If your child suffers from either vomiting or diarrhoea they must be kept off school and can only return 48 hours after their symptoms disappear. The NHS provide a useful guide to illness and when to keep children off school.

If you wish to request authorisation for your child to be absent from school for reasons other than illness please complete the absence request form above.
