Very often we are asked by parents to supply a sicknote for their child having been requested by the school. This is not required except in very special circumstances and in these cases the school will be expected to write to the surgery directly.
To reduce the number of appointments made for the inappropriate requests we have 2 letters available here:
1. for when the school has asked for a sicknote for absence from school: Letter to school - absence (PDF, 328KB)
2. for when the school has asked for a sicknote in relation to examinations: Letter to school - exams (PDF, 402KB)
Please feel free to print the appropriate letter by clicking on the blue writing.
Please remember to complete your child's name before giving the letter to the school.
