Sickness & Diarrhoea
Pupils will need to stay away from school for 48 hours from the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea, in order to contain contagious illnesses.
Pupils will need to stay away from school until they are no longer contagious. This is when the last blister has dried into a scab, which is usually around 5-7 days after the onset of the rash.
