Instead of calling the office, from the 4th of September you can now use this form to report your child’s absence online.

Please report any absences by 9am if possible, and if you have more than one child absent, please report each child separately.

If you prefer not to use the form, you may still call the office at 01865 248862.

If your child attends our foundation stage you are welcome to report your child’s absence by sending a text to the early years mobile phone.

Sickness Policy

If your child is going to be absent, you should use the form above, or call the school and report the absence by 9am at 01865 248862, or email the office at office.2533@west-oxford.oxon.sch.uk

Vomiting & Diarrhoea

If your child has has been vomiting or has had diarrhoea, they must stay off school until 48 hours after the last episode.

We appreciate that this is not always convenient, but it is important for the health of our teachers and the children.

Head Lice & Nits

Occasional outbreaks of head lice (or nits) are inevitable in any school, and with any group of children.

When there is an outbreak we send out a notice to all parents, and would be grateful if you could follow our recommendations for looking for lice/nits and treating the problem promptly. Treatments are quick and easy, and a wide range of options are available in any chemist.

Please consult our Health & Safety Policy to learn more about how seriously we take the welfare of everybody at our school.
