You must keep us informed of current telephone numbers for home and/or work so that we can contact you quickly should your child become ill. Children must not be brought to school for at least 48 hours after sickness or diarrhoea.
Children with infectious diseases must stay away for the statutory period, as recommended by your doctor. You must inform the school if they have Chicken Pox, Mumps or Measles as we need to inform other parents who need to avoid these potentially dangerous infections.
Coughs and colds
Children will need to catch many colds and coughs before they become immune to the normal range of cold ‘bugs’. This is normal when children first start attending a new nursery or school. Please try not keeping them away unless they are feeling unwell.
Children on antibiotics or other medicine for a specific illness should be kept at home until the course of medication is complete.
Parents or Carers are allowed to come into school to give antibiotics if they have been prescribed on a long term basis and the child is well enough to come to school.
Any rash should be seen by a doctor who will decide whether the child may attend school.
Staff are NOT allowed to give medicine unless backed up by letters from the doctor or hospital for serious conditions, e.g. asthma. Detailed permission forms will be filled out in these circumstances.
Please telephone the school to notify us of the reason for your child's absence.

The Federation between Purley Nursery School and Christ Church Primary School is now established and is known as the Purley Partnership Federation. A federated governing body is now in place to oversee the governance of both schools.
Purley Nursery School is pleased to be able to offer the new Government Funded 30 hours of free childcare. Parents who think they might be eligible will need to check on the website, www.childcarechoices.gov.uk, the term before they wish to take up their entitlement.
At Purley Nursery School the 30 hours are offered Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 11.30 and 12.30 to 3.30pm term time only (with the option to pay for the lunch period and bring a packed lunch). Breakfast and After School Club are also available at an additional charge. Please come and visit us Monday to Thursday between 9.30 and 10.30 am or 1pm to 2.30 pm for further details.
All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education. In our School parents and carers can buy additional child-care sessions to provide a full-time place between 7.45am and 6.00pm (subject to availability).
We encourage parents to take up their education hours across the whole week wherever possible - 3 hours on a daily basis morning or afternoon - as we believe that this provides valuable continuity for children.
You can pay your invoice for your additional sessions by ParentPay. Please click here to access our Parent Pay page.
