– For certain illnesses, a medical certificate specifying that the pupil is no longer contagious, is required before returning to school (foot, hand and mouth, for example)

One-off medical treatment

Any medical treatment should as far as possible be administered at home by the parents. However, if your child requires medical treatment during school hours, the procedure is as follows:
