Parents may be assured that the health and safety of our students is our first concern. We need parents' support to ensure that the risk to the children of infection is kept to the absolute minimum.
If your child has any infectious or contagious condition, a temperature of over 37.6° Celsius or is experiencing any symptoms of fever such as body aches, vomiting or diarrhoea, it is school policy that your child stays at home until the symptoms have passed. In certain cases, the school may require documented proof, from a suitable medical professional, that your child’s return to school poses no risk to other students or to staff.
As many infections are spread by contact we urge you to remind your children to wash their hands regularly and to use antibacterial hand sanitisers that are available at most supermarkets and pharmacies.
