I need to inform you that we have lots of sickness and diarrhea in school.
Symptoms begin with complaints of feeling sick, temperature and tummy aches. Although the outbreak can be severe, it should be over for the child in 48 hours from the start of the illness. If it lasts any longer, you should contact your GP for advice.
Pupils then need to wait another 48hours after the last motion of sickness or diarrhea before returning to school to prevent this spreading. Please ensure good handwashing at home.
We are taking additional measures at school to prevent this illness from spreading including extra cleaning.
We also have a rising number of cases of COVID in school. Please watch out for child symptoms - cough, temperature, fatigue and headaches. If your child has symptoms, please keep them at home and/or complete a lateral flow. If they have symptoms you can still request a PCR test. We ask that positive cases are kept at home for a week or until the child has 2 negative tests.
This increase in both infections is rising within our local community. Please be cautious and keep as safe and healthy as you can.
Your co-operation is appreciated.
