Head Lice and Infectious Diseases

Unfortunately this can affect all schools. If you notice lice in your child’s hair please tell us. Such information is always treated in confidence when communication with other parents on this matter.

If your child is diagnosed with an infectious disease e.g. chickenpox please inform the school.


It is the school’s policy not to give ant tablets/medicine to children. If your child needs medication we will be happy to facilitate you to do this at school.

Litter and Hand Washing

We encourage pupils to be hygienic and place litter int he bin and wash hands after using the bathroom.
