It is good practice for us to remind you of the advice from the Health Protection Agency with regards to guidance on infection control in schools. Doctors don’t always suggest how long children are required to be kept out of school, so it is important for all the children and staff, that we follow the advice from this agency. We would like to particularly draw your attention to the advice given regarding Diarrhoea and/or vomiting.
You can prevent the spread of infections by ensuring: routine immunisation, high standards of personal hygiene and practice, particularly handwashing, and maintaining a clean environment.
We ask parents to support school in minimising the spread of illness by keeping your child off school for 48 hours after their last episode of sickness or diarrhea.
