Covid19 continues to impact schools. Please see our latest information which can be found HERE


Anyone can catch head lice, but preschool children, primary school children and their families are most at risk.

Head lice are spread, most commonly, by close person-to-person contact.

For information on how to spot, treat and prevent head lice, visit NHS.UK

We ask that you check your children's hair on a regular basis, for example at bath time/shower time, and treat the inline with guidance if you need to.

Long hair should be tied up for school, reducing the risk of catching head lice. We ask that every parent helps us to prevent the spread of head lice.


They're common in children and spread easily but you can treat them without seeing your GP. You can buy medicine for threadworms from pharmacies. This is usually a chewable tablet or liquid you swallow.

Treat everyone in your household, even if they do not have symptoms.

Health Protection Agency advice is:

* Wash hands and scrub under fingernails, particularly before eating, after using the toilet or changing nappies.

* Encourage children to wash hands regularly

* Bathe or shower every morning

* Rinse toothbrushes before using them

* Keep fingernails short

* Wash sleepwear, sheets, towel and soft toys (at normal temperature)

You do not need to stay off school, nursery or work with threadworms.
