If your child is unable to attend school please contact us before 9 a.m. on the first day of illness on our absence hotline T: 01904 806464 (Option1) and make us aware of the symptoms/diagnosis so that we can consider if we need to take any further action within school. We may contact you further if we need any additional information to clarify the situation. Please do not hesitate to contact school should you wish to discuss your specific circumstances further.
We acknowledge that there are occasions when it is best that a child refrain from school to both promote a quick recovery and limit the spread of any infection. The school will always follow the latest published guidance when dealing with any illness or infection. The guidance below is provided by Public Health England and forms the basis of procedures in school.
If your child is ill please use the following information to assist you in deciding how to proceed in relation to attendance at school.
For more information on our whole school approach to good attendance please take a look at our Attendance information.
#WPSYY2 were kept extremely busy during their day at Ripon Museum and showed great perseverance, whilst working in the laundry room and washing all of the Victorian clothes. #WPSYHistory #Woodthorpecharacter
Year 2 had a wonderful day last week at Ripon Museum. We started our day, in the Victorian school room and showed great determination during our handwriting lesson. #WPSYY2 #WPSYHistory #Woodthorpecharacter
To finish off our science topic ‘seasonal changes’, Year 1 proudly presented their own weather forecast! We used our prior knowledge of measuring the temperature and stating the different types of weather. ☀️ 💨 🌧️ #WPSYY1 #WPSYScience #Woodthorpecharacter
Would we have liked to go to school in the past? #WPSYY2 enjoyed finding out about Victorian classrooms; chanting times tables, practising our reading and writing on slate instead of paper. We were very respectful to the school mistress! #WPSYHistory #woodthorpecharacter
