Sickness Bug

Dear Parents,

 

As you are aware, it is that time of the year when sickness bugs are very common in schools. I am writing to inform you that, unfortunately, there have been several cases of vomiting and diarrhoea within school today.

 

To try and prevent further cases, we are encouraging all the children to thoroughly wash their hands as often as possible in school. Mrs Martin is also continuing to make sure that all areas of the school are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. 

 

If your child suffers with diarrhoea and/or vomiting, please encourage them to drink plenty of fluids to stop dehydration. We would ask you to keep your child at home for at least 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting and/or diarrhoea (this is national guidance).

 

The following website gives advice on how to treat vomiting and sickness.

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Kind regards,

 

Miss O’Connor

Headteacher
