Contact your GP if you are concerned

If you are concerned about your child’s health you should consult a health professional such as 111 or your GP.

If your child has a serious illness

If your child has a serious illness – illnesses that are 15 consecutive days plus – then you should notify your school. The school will then contact the council about putting in place plans to support your child’s education for the duration of the illness.

For more information please contact your child’s school.
