Coronavirus: will absence be authorised?

17 March 2020 (by admin)

The school must follow strict guidance about when and whether to authorise absences.

 When absence will be authorised:

  • if a child, although not sick, needs to self isolate as a precautionary measure if there is a risk to someone in the family with a severe medical condition.
  • if a child or close family member is showing symptoms of a high temperature or a new, continuous cough.

When absence will not be authorised:

                 if a child is absent as a precautionary measure through fear of contracting the coronavirus without there being any                     special circumstance.
