It can be tricky deciding whether or not to keep your child off school when they're unwell. To help you make the right decision the NHS has published some guidance which may help with your decision.

If you do keep your child at home, it's important to phone the school on the first day. Let us know that your child won't be in and give us the reasons so this can be logged. Just saying the child is 'ill' is also not enough, you must provide details e.g. symptoms etc.
If your childs attendance is low due to regular illness the school will be in contact with you to try and help improve this.
