On several occasions we have needed to contact parents when a child was taken ill only to find that the parents were at work. If parents are at work, or otherwise away from home, they are asked to let the school know:
- where we may contact a parent, or
- the name of a neighbour or relative who will collect the child and look after him/her in an emergency.
If a child is not collected at the end of the day, parents will be contacted and the child looked after until a parent arrives.
