Health & Wellbeing
The document 'Guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings' outlines most of the illnesses that your child may have at some point during their time at school. The document outlines what parents can do to prevent and treat some illnesses, it also offers advice of when to send children into school and when you should keep your child at home and for how long to recover or whether they are infectious to other children.
For statutory requirements the school may need to report illness to the Health Protection Unit (HPO).
