Guidance on Illness

Please see the attached government guidance regarding Swine Flu.

A number of parents have asked for guidance on how long children should be kept away from school with illness. For the illnesses which raise most queries with parents our general guidance is:

Sickness/diarrhoea - 48 clear hours after the last episode before returning to school

Slapped cheek – children can come to school as they are not thought to be infectious once the symptoms are showing

Chickenpox - 5 days after the onset on the rash before returning to school

 

For any other illness call school for advice. The school has a list issued by the Health Protection Agency which we use for guidance or we are advised on school policy by school nurse.
