Please note that if a child is reported as having a bad stomach (either way) it is school policy, as directed by Bucks and the Dfe, for that child to be off for 48 hours to prevent the spread of these illnesses. At the moment some schools have large amounts of children off as the virus has spread very rapidly. We have managed to isolate this so far, but on average have 15 children a day off with this problem. We therefore kindly ask parents to respect this policy for the wellbeing of all the children at school. We will ask you to collect you child if they come back to school before the end of the 48 hours. We will also keep your child isolated if this is not possible or we cannot get hold of you. This is nothing new, it has been in force for several years. Thank you all for your help with this matter at a peak time for illness.
