Some very important health advice from Parent Council to start off the year !! Please check your child regularly – thank you.
Head lice infection control from the Health Protection Agency. Here is an extract and a link to the website:
Should a child with head lice be kept off school?
• No! The DfEE/DoH guidelines for infection control in schools and nurseries state that there is no need for a child who has head lice to stay away from school.
• One reason for this is that if a child does have lice, he or she will have had them at school for several weeks before diagnosis.
The best way to stop infection is for people to learn how to check their heads for lice.
