Since returning from the Christmas break we have had a significant number of children absent from school, having caught the highly contagious vomiting bug.
After seeking advice from Public Health England, I am reassured that the school is taking the necessary action to control the bug, given that we are a primary school.
We would like to ask parents to continue to keep their child off school for 48 hours after sickness has cleared up – not 48 hours since they were first poorly. However, please ring the school on a daily basis to report your child off sick.
Our school is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected every day; staff encourage the children to regularly wash their hands with soap and warm water and those who feel or are sick are isolated straight away and sent home. We are working hard to minimise any further chances of the bug spreading.
Thank you for your support.
