Mild Illness and School Attendance

This year the UK Government is kicking off the school term with a discussion on issues related to mild illness and school attendance. An issue which has been particularly active since the commencement and draw down of the UK Government's response to the COVID-19 period. Many parents are increasingly unsure of how to act when a child reports themselves to be ill. In addition the growing instability of world affairs has translated in increased anxiety among pupils. The UK Government is committing itself to mitigating this rising issue, with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) producing new guidance on medical absences and the Department for Education writing to school leaders on the matter. To read both the letter, and the RCGP guidance, please follow the link below:
