Absence from school

Should your child be ill please make sure you contact school at the earliest possible convenience to allow the appropriate staff to be informed. School can be notified by calling the office on 0191 6432026 or e-mailing langley.first@northtyneside.gov.uk


If your child has been sick or had diarrhoea please do not send them to school until at least 48 hours from when their symptoms disappear.  This is in line with current medical guidance which can be found at nhs.uk/Livewell/Yourchildatschool/Pages/Illness.aspx


If your child is ill during school time, we will call the main contacts held on the school’s information system.  Please make sure that any changes to phone numbers or addresses for emergency contacts are kept up to date.
