Ill health guidelines April 2024

Ill health guidelines April 2024

    • Children and young people with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend their education setting.
    • Children, young people and adults who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They can go back to school, college or childcare, and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. The temperature needs to have returned to normal without the aid of medication.
    • All children and young people with respiratory symptoms should be encouraged to cover their mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when coughing and/or sneezing and to wash their hands after using or disposing of tissues.

Diarrhoea and Vomiting

    • If a child or adult has had diarrhoea or vomiting, they must not attend school for 48 hours. The 48 hours begins after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.
    • If you feel that the episode is due to an allergic reaction, please contact school. Do not bring your child to school until you have been in contact with a member of staff.
