Advice on illnesses
The school are obliged to follow the guidance given by NHS England. If you would like advice relating to any childhood illness, please contact Public Health East of England on 0300 303 8537.

To help you decide whether you should allow your child a day off when poorly, the NHS has produced guidance on common illnesses. This guidance is available via

This guidance underpins the Schools decision whether or not the reason provided for absence is to be authorised.

The message given is quite clear: Common or minor illnesses do not necessitate a day off school. Colds, coughs, sore throats and headaches are not acceptable reasons for your child’s absence from school. Absences for these reasons will not be authorised at White Hall Academy.

Please support us by ensuring your child attends school regularly.
