What happens when my child is sick?

Parents should use the ‘attendance notes’ feature in the Aladdin Connect App to inform the school of a child’s absence due to illness, appointment or any other reason. The app can also be used to let us know about late arrivals or children leaving school early on occasion. Ideally, notes would be submitted before 9.20am.

Attendance Notes can be submitted as follows:

  • Enter a reason for an existing absence – You can enter a reason for an unexplained past absence.
  • My child will be absent – You can enter an absence up to 10 days in advance.
  • My child will be late – You can enter in the Date, Time and a Note.
  • My child will be collected early – You can enter in the Date, Time, Collected by and a Note.
  • View my notes – You can view all your recently submitted notes and delete them if plans change.

Requests to remain indoors at break times should only be made in exceptional circumstances.

Minor accidents are treated at school and parents are informed at the end of the school day.  In the event of a more serious accident or child becoming ill, every possible effort will be made to contact the pupil’s parents or guardian.

It is imperative that the school has the most up to date home, work and mobile numbers of parents.  Please also notify the school of any changes to address or contact details.
