A message from Public Health

Please find attached a guidance sheet that provides simple information on common winter illnesses and appropriate signposting to assist with keeping our children and young people well this winter.  PH Winter Schools Info leaflet – FINAL 2018

This guidance enables parents to be aware of the medical advice relating to winter illnesses – in particular, letting them know where they should go to access services, as well as when and if their child should remain off school. Further more detailed  information specifically for schools can be sourced via the Public Health England or Healthier Together website’s

Thank you for your continued support

Yours Faithfully
