Information leaflet regarding covid 19 symptoms and what you should do
When children are at school they will often catch a virus, such as a cough and a cold, from those around them.
The guidance for children who have had the runs, diarrhea, or have been sick, is to keep them off school for two days from the last time they had diarrhea or sickness.
You are advised to treat for headlice if a live louse is found but remember to check everyone in the home and treat them too if they have a live louse, otherwise, they will soon be back.
