Health Advice

This is based on NHS Advice for Schools

Parents are requested to notify the school of any chronic or contagious medical conditions

Chickenpox

Keep your child off school until all of their spots have crusted over.

Cough and Cold

A child with a minor cough or cold may attend school.  If this is accompanied by a raised temperature, shivers or drowsiness, the child should stay off school and return to school 24 hours after they start to feel better.

German Measles

Your child should stay off school for at least 4 days from the start of the rash.

Hand, Foot and Mouth

This is a common infection that causes mouth ulcers and spots on the hands and feet.  Keep your child away from school until feeling better.

Headache

A child with a mild headache does not usually need to be kept off school.  If it is more severe or accompanied by other symptoms such as a temperature or drowsiness, then the child should stay off school.

Measles

Your child should stay away from school for at least 4 days from the appearance of the rash.

Mumps

Your child should stay away from school for at least 5 days from the start of the symptoms.

Raised Temperature

If your child has a raised temperature, they shouldn’t attend school.  They can return 24 hours after they start to feel better.

Rash

Keep your child off school and  check with your GP or practice nurse.  Skin rashes can be the first sign of many infectious diseases.

Scarlet Fever

This is a mild childhood illness but does require antibiotic treatment.  Please see your GP and keep your child off school for at least 24 hours after starting taking the antibiotic treatment.

Sore Throat

Your child may attend school with a minor sore throat alone but if accompanied by a raised temperature your child should stay at home.

Vomiting and Diarrhoea

Children with vomiting or diarrhoea must be kept off school until at least 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.

Whooping Cough

Your child should stay away from school for 3 weeks from the start of coughing bouts or 5 days from the start of antibiotic treatment (whichever is sooner).
