Guidance on infection Control in Schools

My child is unwell – how long should they be kept away from school - When children are unwell, parents often ask us for advice on how long they should be kept away from school/nursery.  For example, where a child has diarrhoea and/or vomiting the recommended period to be kept away is 48 hours from the last occurrence.  This advice is taken from guidance produced by Public Health England – guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings.  The guidance covers all the illnesses and infections you are likely to come across…chickenpox, impetigo, ringworm, conjunctivitis, tonsillitis and many more.  If you need any advice please continue to contact us but we hope this document is helpful.   Please click on the link to take you to the Public Health England document 'Guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings'.
