Child Sickness Absence

Reporting an Absence

If your child should be attending the club and will be absent due to illness, please inform the OOSC staff as soon as possible.  Unfortunately, you will still be charged the full fee of missed sessions. When your child is ready to return to the club, please notify a Childcare Lead.

If your Child becomes Unwell at the Club

Children who appear unwell will be separated from other children and settled in a quiet area with somewhere to rest.  They will be made as comfortable as possible and a member of staff will supervise them. A Childcare Lead will be notified so that a decision can be made as to whether you (or another emergency contact) will be notified.  The decision as to whether your child will be able to remain on the premises will be made jointly between the Childcare Lead and your child.

If your child vomits or develops diarrhoea, you will be contacted immediately and asked to collect them.  There should be no return to the club until 48 hours after the last episode of illness.

Infectious Disease

Any child who has an infectious disease may not be allowed to attend the club.  Your child’s return can be arranged with a Childcare Lead in accordance with current health agency guidelines.  Further information is available at the school office.
