48 hour rule

Posted on: 9th Feb 2018

If your child experiences sickness or diarrhea, please could you keep them off school for 48 hours to help prevent other children becoming unwell through contact.

Guidance from the NHS states:

Children with vomiting and/or diarrhea should definitely be kept off school for at least 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.  Most cases of vomiting and/or diarrhea get better without treatment, but if symptoms persist, contact your GP.  (www.nhs.uk/livewell/your childatschool/pages/illness)
