Watch out Flu is about !

As you are may be aware there have been cases of Flu confirmed at a Stockport school. While there are no cases in our school at this time we want to ensure that our children remain healthy and take every precaution against the spread of the virus. We have increased the cleaning levels in school and encourage the children to follow the advice below.

CATCH IT: Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing and use a tissue.

BIN IT: Dispose of dirty tissues and bin them immediately.

KILL IT: Maintain good basic hygiene e.g. wash your hands frequently with soap and water.

If your child has any of the following symptoms: fever (37.8⁰C or higher) and any one of the following: tiredness, cough, sore throat, muscle pain, runny nose or congestion, wheezing please keep them off school for at least 5 days.   Children should:

  • Rest at home

  • Take medicines such as paracetamol to relieve the symptoms, children under 16 should not be given aspirin or flu remedies containing aspirin.

  • Drink plenty of fluids
