If Your Child Is Unwell

Pembury House Nursery School and Children’s Centre

If Your Child Is Unwell


  • If a child appears ill or informs an adult that s/he is feeling unwell, then one of our team will comfort the child.
  • We will contact the child’s parent/carer immediately.
  • Similarly, if a child has an accident at school, parents will be informed, either immediately, by telephone or by a letter at the end of the day, depending on the severity of the accident.
  • Parents are always informed if a child bumps his/her head.
  • Minor cuts and grazes are treated by first aiders
  • All accidents, no matter how minor, are recorded in our Accident Book and parents / carers will receive a copy of the report.


If your child is ill, please notify the school office as soon as possible.


The government document: actions for schools during Covid was withdrawn on 1st April 2022

Living with Covid plans came into effect on 1st April

New isolation guidance for children:
The new guidance on respiratory infections, including COVID-19, (Chapter 3: public health management of specific infectious diseases) states:

"If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test. The risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower after 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature.

Children and young people who usually attend an education or childcare setting and who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.“

Thank you for your support at this time.
