We have been advised by Lancashire's Health Protection Team to pass on that it is the time of year when 'Winter Vomiting' (Norovirus) can spread very quickly though schools and nurseries. We have been offered some advice for reducing the chances of an outbreak within school and attached is an advice letter for parents so you can also be vigilant. The key message is that if your child has symptons of sickness or diarrhoea, even if they feel well again in themselves, they must not come to school for at least 48 hours so that the spread of the condition is controlled.
