Information for parents
Should I send my child to school?
It can be hard to judge whether a child showing any symptoms of illness should be sent to school, especially at the moment. The NHS has developed a handy guide for parents to support them in deciding to send their child to school or not.
This covers Covid-related symptoms but also other common childhood conditions such as impetigo, chicken pox and cold sores.
