Recent illness in school

Due to an increased number of children attending our school who have reported illness with symptoms including fever, cough, nausea and vomiting, we have contacted Public Health England as a precautionary measure. We have issued parents/carers with information provided by the North East Health Protection Team with advice about these illnesses.

Your child should not attend school if they have symptoms of flu and should only return once they have recovered.

The spread of most infectious illnesses is reduced through good hygiene. At school, we encourage all children to wash their hands frequently with warm water and soap, particularly after using the toilet, after using a tissue to catch a cough or sneeze, and before eating. In addition we have many hand sanitisers around the school building for staff, children and visitors to use.

We have postponed our planned coffee afternoon on Friday 22nd November 2019 as a precaution to not have large numbers of family members in the school building.

School is open as usual for those children well enough to attend. Please ensure children only return to school  when they are fully fit to stop the spread of any illnesses.

Thank you for your support. 

Please contact school if you have any questions or concerns.
