There is a large amount of illness in school presenting as high temperatures, coughs & sickness, however we do also have three confirmed cases of scarlet fever.
If you suspect your child has scarlet fever please see your GP immediately. Children diagnosed with scarlet fever will be prescribed antibiotics and should follow medical advice before returning to school.
We have contacted the School Nursing team & Public Health, England for advice.
HPA leaflet available at the school office upon request, or visit NHS Choices here.
If your child is absent you must contact school on the first day of absence to let us know the reason. Send a letter with your child on return to school confirming why they were absent.
Good hygiene practice is essential to minimise the spreading of infection.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require further advice or support.
