federated with Witnesham Primary School

The website for Witnesham Primary can be found here.  




Our school follows NHS advice on when children should be kept away from school.





Please telephone the school on the first day of absence to let us know that your child is unwell, this should ideally be before 9.15am when first registration closes. Unless advised by the School office you will then need to make contact with the school to update us daily if your child is still unable to return to school for the same reason.


In particular, please note that


'Children with diarrhoea and/or vomiting should definitely be kept off school until at least 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.'


Please speak with the School Office if any further clarification is needed. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
