We have also had a number of children who have been reported as unwell with a sickness bug, so please can I politely remind families about the importance of regular handwashing and should your child become unwell with sickness and/or diarrhoea then they should not return to school until they have been clear of the symptoms for 48 hours. Thank you.
If you have any concerns or queries please speak with your child’s Class Teacher. Thank you.
