Scarlet Fever

Dear Parents

Please be aware that we have had two cases of Scarlet Fever reported in our school.  We have informed and taken advice from Public Health England South East. The attached information is provided by Public Health England with regard to the signs, symptoms and actions to be taken.

 

Following national guidance, adults and children with suspected Scarlet Fever should be kept away from school for 24 hours after the commencement of the appropriate course of antibiotics.

 

Please follow the web link http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Scarlet-fever/Pages/Introduction.aspx for further information. We have also uploaded an additional Public Health question and answer form.

 

Please contact the school office if you have any further concerns.
