Winter is often the time when people get tummy bugs and flu. They spread easily but it is really easy to stop them.
• Wash your hands after using the toilet and before handling food – you just need hot, soapy water.
• Germs live on doorknobs and household surfaces. Keep them clean
If your child has a tummy bug or the flu we ask parents not to return their children to school until 48 hours after they were last sick or had diarrhoea. We understand entirely how difficult this can be for families, but a child who is still infectious might well have caught the illness from someone who was sent back to school too soon.
MEDICINES IN SCHOOL.
Parents need to inform the school if a child has a medical problem or illness that requires their child having their medicine kept on school premises and administered during school hours. Please request a form from the school office which will need completing and signing by you before we can administer the medicine.
