Child Illnesses and Coming to School

Children regularly catch coughs and colds, especially once they start school.  Generally, children can come to school if they just have a cough or a cold.  General guidance from NHS about common childhood illnesses can be found below but it is important to remember that if your child has a sickness bug or diarrhoea then they must not come to school for 48 hours after the last incident.
