Absences and Illness


We keep a record of your child's attendance in school therefore if he/she is not well or has an unavoidable medical appointment please contact the school on 01962 869496 and speak to a member of staff or leave a message. You will also need to write a letter explaining their absence on their return to school. Alternatively you can email admin@oliversb.com.

Medical Appointments/Late Children

If you need to take your child out of school for a medical appointment please ensure you sign him/her in and out at the main office. Likewise, if your child is late for school he/she must come to the main reception. This is for safety reasons as we need to have children registered in the case of a fire drill or emergency. If your child is going to arrive late and would like a school lunch please telephone the office by 9.30am to place the order.
