If your child has
an accident or illness at school we will get in touch with you
immediately. Often no action is needed but if it is and, if we
are unable to contact you, we will, of course, take whatever

fine they should not be sent to school as this only results in the
infection being spread to other children within the school, and a
risk of your own child being re-infected once his/her anti-biotic
course has finished. This is especially relevant as far as strep
