Sickness We have had a significant number of pupils off this past week with either a heavy cold or sickness bug. Please discuss at home the importance of hand washing and good hygiene in order to protect ourselves the best we can from picking up illnesses. Conversations have already been had in school with the children around this. We are doing all we can to try and combat the spread of illness in school. Please, if your child is unwell do not send them to school. We appreciate the difficulties of working parents and childcare, however, sending a child to school when they are unwell is adding to the spread of illness in school.

Mrs. Adams – Head of School
