Illness & Absence Information

Dear Parents

I am writing to you as we are currently experiencing a large number of absences from school. The reasons for the absences are varied, but there are a larger number of students than normal who have had Flu like symptoms including sickness/diarrhoea.

Basic tips to follow, as always, are good hygiene:

  • Wash hands with soap and water and dry hands;
  • When sneezing “catch it and bin it”.

Further advice is included in the attached letter from Public Health England. Hopefully the associated bugs will quickly pass us by and we can return to seeing all our students healthy and back in school.

Yours sincerely

Mr Chris McAree, Headteacher
