Bingley Grammar School

Illness and Absence

IF YOUR CHILD IS AWAY FROM SCHOOL PLEASE WOULD YOU TELEPHONE THE SCHOOL ABSENCE LINE TO LET US KNOW ON THE FIRST MORNING OF ABSENCE.

To report an illness or absence you can contact the school on: 01274 807701

Students will also need a signed note from the parents explaining the reasoning of the absence.

Medical

The School has a full time workplace first aider on site. If a pupil is unwell, then with the approval of the tutor, parents will be contacted for permission to send the child home. In more serious cases, or where an injury requires further investigation, the first aider will ask parents to take the child to hospital. In an emergency, the first aider will send directly for an ambulance and contact parents immediately.
