The standard procedure for the Primary School for a child’s short-term absence due to sickness is for the parent/legal guardian to inform the class teacher via email by 8:30 on the first day of the absence.
After an absence of more than two days, pupils should present a medical certificate upon their return.
If an absence on personal grounds for a Nursery or Primary pupil is desired, then it is necessary for the parent/legal guardian of that child to email a request to Ms Clancy, Deputy Director, (email@example.com) explaining the reasons for the absence.
A written request for absence on personal grounds must include the full name and class of the child, as well as a statement that all insurance responsibility for the child during their absence from school will be overtaken by the child’s parents/legal guardians.
