Illness Guidance

Does your child have a bug? Are you worried about a chicken pox outbreak? Or not sure about the guidelines for conjunctivitis? Our children regularly come into contact with germs and illnesses, and unfortunately they are often quick to spread. The Public Health Agency have put together the below document which provides useful guidance for parents on what to do if your child is suffering from one these common childhood illnesses. Click on the poster to see it in a larger format. We also have a guide as to how long your child should be off school for which you can view here and some more specific information for parents of children suffering from sickness and diarrhoea.




It is very important that you adhere to all government guidelines if you have symptoms and/or a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. Please refer to the following guidelines in this situation:



Please also remember to call the school office on 0116 2841500 by 9:30am and let us know if your child will be absent that day.
