At present, Public Health England (South West) are receiving an increased number of calls from schools reporting outbreaks of respiratory / flu-like illness. If your child succumbs to one of these flu-like illnesses it is important that you keep them at home until they are free of these symptoms. This is usually about 1 week after onset. We appreciate this may pose childcare difficulties but staying at home will not only aid their recovery but will help reduce on going transmission of the infection.

Thank you for you cooperation with this.
