Childhood Illnesses

Childhood illnesses guide

Children pick up all sorts of bugs so hopefully the two guides (click on the link) below will be of some use.

NHS - Is my child too ill for school?

Childhood Illnesses

A guide for parents and carers of children aged birth-5 years

Exclusion Table - how long to stay off school

A reminder of the procedure if your child is unwell and cannot attend school

If your child is not well and not able to come to school then we ask that parents telephone the school office on 01622 812199 every day of their child's absence. 

We have a 48 hour diarrhoea and sickness policy at Wateringbury School - Your child cannot attend school until 48 hours has passed since they have last been sick or had diarrhoea.
