Yes. It is always good practice to arrange a return to work meeting with someone who has been off sick: whether that is a short term or long term sickness absence. That meeting gives you the opportunity to make sure that they are fit to return to work at school; whether they may need a phased return to work; whether they need any support or any adjustments making to help their ability to work and sustain attendance at school. It is also a good opportunity to find out if there are any underlying issues which you need to be aware of linked to their absence. See:
