NHS – sickness guidance

All children were issued with letters today providing guidance from the NHS on gastrointestinal symptoms (sickness, diarrhoea and sometimes stomach pain etc).

The current NHS advice is:

Careful hand washing before eating or preparing food and after being at the toilet is very important to limit the risk of spread. In addition, any person, teacher or pupil, who has symptoms should stay off school or go home. They should not return to the school until they have had no symptoms for a period of 48 hours.
