Sickness Policy

9 December 2019 (by ADMIN (admin))

Dear Parents/Carers: We have been advised by Public Health England that there are currently parts of the country experiencing outbreaks of the norovirus (diarrhoea and vomiting).

The borough is monitoring the situation closely in its schools and we have been asked to reiterate the message that any child experiencing any bout of sickness or diarrhoea should remain off school for 48hrs from the last episode.

This is particularly important in ensuring that any illness is contained – even when children look or present as well again, they can still carry the virus, and we ask for your co-operation in keeping our school community as healthy as possible.
