Health and Reporting an illness
If your child is ill, please report it to school by calling the Office on 0116 277 2082, alternatively you can send an email via email@example.com
Does your child have a bug? Are you worried about a chicken pox outbreak? Or not sure about the guidelines for conjunctivitis? Our children regularly come into contact with germs and illnesses, and unfortunately they are often quick to spread. The Public Health Agency have put together the below document which provides useful guidance for parents on what to do if your child is suffering from one these common childhood illnesses. (For a larger format, please see the attachment below)
If you have any other concerns about your child's health or development, we have access to a school nurse. For further details please see our 'School Nurse' page or click here

National Child Measurement Programme
- The NCMP has created a film aimed at parents in which a local GP, a public health nurse (school nurse) and dietician explain more about the programme and the support available for families. The film is available within the parents’ section of the Health for Kids website (www.healthforkids.co.uk) alongside frequently asked questions relating to the NCMP and advice about encouraging physical activity. You can also access the film by following this link: National Child Measurement Programme
