Keeping Healthy

Micro Scooters

We are proud to be working with Micro Scooters who have donated 3 wheeled scooters and scooter helmets for our children to use. The company also run a ScooterAid scheme whereby they revamp old/unwanted Micro Scooters and send them to good causes across the country – giving thousands of children who may otherwise miss out the chance to play. If you have a scooter you would like to donate the scheme please get in touch with Micro Scooters.


Guidelines as to when to keep your child off school...

The following guidelines should be followed to ensure infection or illness is not passed on to other children:

  • Vomiting or diarrhoea - keep off for at least 48 hours after the last episode
  • COVID                            - keep off for 3 days to avoid infection & while your child feels                                                     unwell
  • Chickenpox                  - keep off until the last batch of spots have crusted over - usually                                               5 days.
  • Measles                        - keep off for 5 days from the onset of the rash.
  • Mumps                          - keep off for 5 days from the onset of swollen glands.

  • Hand, Foot & Mouth    - Keep your child off school while they're feeling unwell. But as                                                   soon as they're feeling better, they can go back to school..
  • Conjunctivitis              - your child can return to school if feeling well 
  • Threadworms              - seek treatment but can return to school if feeling well
  • Tonsillitis                      - stay off school until able to swallow and fever as gone

  • Slap Cheek                   - You do not need to stay away from school

Although in many cases you do not need to keep your child away from school, please could let you child's class teacher know so that we can continue to support your child and keep a record of any illnesses in school.  Also to allow us to inform any parents of children who may have an auto immune condition.  

Thank you for your cooperation.
