Scarlet Fever

We would like to make you aware that a small number of children have been diagnosed with scarlet fever. Although scarlet fever is usually a mild illness, it should be treated with antibiotics to minimise the risk of complications and reduce the spread to others.
The symptoms of scarlet fever include a sore throat, headache, fever, nausea, and vomiting. This is followed by a fine red rash that typically first appears on the chest and stomach, rapidly spreading to other parts of the body. On more darkly- pigmented skin, the scarlet rash may be harder to spot, but it should feel like 'sandpaper'. The face can be flushed red but pale around the mouth.


If you think you, or your child, have scarlet fever:
• see your GP or contact NHS 111 as soon as possible
• make sure that you/your child takes the full course of any antibiotics
• prescribed by the doctor.
• stay at home, away from nursery, school or work for at least 24 hours after starting the
antibiotic treatment, to avoid spreading the infection.

Complications
Children who have had chickenpox recently are more likely to develop a more serious infection during an outbreak of scarlet fever and so parents should remain vigilant for symptoms such as persistent high fever, cellulitis (skin infection) and arthritis (joint pain and swelling). If you are concerned for any reason please seek medical assistance immediately. If your child has an underlying condition that affects their immune system, you should contact your GP or hospital doctor to discuss whether any additional measures are needed. You can find more information in the Frequently Asked Questions and further advice can also be obtained from the Health Protection Team on 0344 225 3560 during office hours.

Coronavirus 

We have been issued with the following link from the Government containing advice on how we can all help to protect ourselves and others.

A couple of school rules for those new parents joining our community and a reminder to the rest of the community. 

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy remaining on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present/supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning of the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be

Please note that we have been advised by the Local authority that the insurance on the school taxi is invalidated if friends accompany children who are entitled or pay for this travel. Therefore in future alternative arrangements will need to be made as they are no longer able to travel in the taxi with them. 

We are looking for parent/carer volunteers. 

 Open the Book is all about taking the moral and ethical messages from the bible and retelling them to the children through storytelling and roleplaying in assembly time on a Wednesday but we really need some more volunteers. So can you spare some time after drop off, you can come on an ad-hoc basis and you don’t need to be staunch Christians?

If you can help please make yourself known to Mrs. Ross. These are the dates: 

4th,11th, and 18th March
