As we head into the winter months, please find below a general reminder of illnesses in school.
Due to the increased vulnerability of our Pupils, we must all take extra precautions when dealing with potential infectious illnesses.
If you feel your child/young person is unwell, please contact the school to check before sending them on to transport.
If your child has required paracetamol/Ibuprofen, please contact the school before putting them on transport.
Pupil Escorts will be encouraged to contact the school if they feel that your child is in any way unwell, so please be patient and understanding.
For cough/colds/respiratory illnesses – Please keep your child at home if the following applies:
· coughs where the child young person is unable to perform cough etiquette in the infectious period.
· Runny noses – Green/yellow or constant runny nose.
For Diarrhoea and vomiting
• Please ensure that 48 hours has passed between the last episode of vomiting and or loose bowel movement
If your child/young person has a regular cough/vomits/diarrhoea or paracetamol/ibuprofen for medical reasons, please ensure that the school have been informed of any condition. Otherwise, normal exclusions will apply.
