fit notes
Fit Notes
  • After 7 calendar days – self certify before
  • Employee keeps original, school has copy
  • Fit for work (not necessarily whole job/full hours) – what’s reasonable?
  • See again at end of absence?
  • No need for fit note to return – risk assessment
  • GPs not OH specialists – don’t have job knowledge
  • Dates on a fit note are inclusive
  • Fit note is evidence for your sick pay procedures
  • The fit note is not binding on the employer – get OH advice, do risk assessment
monitoring and reporting
Monitoring and Reporting
  • What do you hold at school?
  • How can you use the data to help manage absence?
  • Data Protection
  • Collate and review absence data on a regular basis with HT and HR to identify patterns, trends
  • Add absence on agenda for Personnel Committees
  • Use data to influence local absence policies and others
using sims

  • Absence reporting in SIMS
  • How to do an absence report in SIMS
  • How to add Absence Reasons in SIMS
  • Absence reasons advised by HR for SIMS

what is disability leave
What is ‘disability leave’?
  • Not a good term – not an ‘entitlement’
  • Appointments for rehabilitation, assessment or treatment of a disability = ‘disability leave’, e.g.
    • Pre- and post-admission appointments to hospital
    • Pre- and post-surgery physiotherapy appointments
    • The day of surgery
    • Occupational Health appointments
    • GP appointments
  • Recuperation after treatment = sick leave
  • Still reasonable to expect appointments to be out of working hours
costs
Costs
  • Absence has a cost – either direct or indirect
  • Direct – cost of cover
  • Indirect – work not done / deadlines missed / work given to others
  • Impact on pupils’ learning and progress
  • Average daily cost for MPR3 = £170
  • Average daily cost for UPR3 = £250
  • Average for Grade 5 = £130
