IMPORTANT INFORMATION

15 December 2019 (by Mrs Gornall)

We have received the following advice from Public Health England:

Schools are experiencing increased reporting of diarrhoea and vomiting in school aged children consistent with viral gastroenteritis.  This is often caused by Norovirus, a frequent cause of vomiting and diarrhoea in the community during the winter.  Those reporting diarrhoea and vomiting should exclude themselves from school until 48 hours after the vomiting and/or diarrhoea have stopped.  This is an important control measure which aims to limit the spread of infection to others.
