I am asking this through a genuinely interested POV. I do not wish to dig at any particular poster or illness. I had 7 weeks off myself last academic year due to being signed off with an injury so I'm not being snide. I ask this as there are situations in RL where I feel some may take the biscuit. I know at least 2 teachers who never do a full week due to either their illness or their childrens. It is no exaggeration, they will have at least 1 day off a week. When should Occ Health get involved or is it just 'that is the way of the world'? If it was a child, the attendance officer would be asking for medical notes surely?
