Sickness & Medication

Please contact school as soon as possible if your child is ill, especially if your child has an infectious disease. Please call school on the telephone number (0151) 709 2572. Alternatively you can email notify school via the school app (download from the home page of the website) and a member of the admin team will call you back.

Illness at School

The normal procedure is for school to telephone home. Arrangements will then be made for parents or a responsible adult to collect the child. It is important that the emergency contact form is filled in for each child to assist in the event of parents being unavailable. Parents will be asked to update this information annually.

For this reason it is essential that the school is informed of any change in home details or circumstances.


The school follows the policy and guidance on the administering of medicines as set out by the Education Authority. However, should your child need medication then please speak to the class teacher, admin team or lead first aider Mr Woods.
