Winter Bugs and Sickness

It's important that as a school we are taking all the steps we can to minimise the spread of bugs and viruses such as Norovirus.

We will do this by taking the following preventative steps:

  • All staff and children should wash their hands with warm, soapy water after using the toilet.
  • All staff and pupils should always wash their hands prior to eating.
  • All staff and pupils should make full use of the hand sanitisers available throughout the school. 

If a child vomits and we suspect it might be Norovirus we will take the following steps:

  • We will inform premises staff immediately so that any necessary cleaning can take place quickly.
  • The child's parents will be contacted immediately with a view to sending them home as soon as possible. 
  • Parents will be advised that their child should not return to school until they have been clear of symptoms for 48 hours.
