Now Wash Your Hands

We hope that this term will be a healthy one, but the Office of Public Health Infection prevention team has already been in touch to remind us that although Norovirus is currently at low circulating levels, we should still be vigilant for signs and symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting in our pupils and staff. If your child is unlucky enough to be ill, please keep him/her at home for at least 48 hours after the symptoms of Norovirus have stopped to reduce the risk of passing the virus to others. We shall be encouraging the children to wash their hands regularly with soap and water, to keep the risk of infection to a minimum.
