Vomiting and Diarrhoea - 48hr Rule

Sickness and diarrhoea commonly affects children and staff and can be caused by a number of germs, including viruses, parasites and bacteria. Infections can be easily spread from person to person (by unwashed hands), especially in children. The schools policy is that a child with diarrhoea and/or vomiting symptoms must stay away from school until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours (the `48 hour rule`).

If your child is sick at school, we will ask you or your emergency contact to take your child home. They should not return for 48 hours. We appreciate that this is inconvenient in many cases and you may not believe your child is ill, but you will appreciate that we do this in all cases and it should reduce the risk of infection for all children in school.

* As an example, if your child is sick at lunchtime on a Tuesday, they should not return to school until Friday, provided there have not been any further episodes of vomiting.
