As many of you are already aware, 2 schools in the local area have closed as a result of illness. At this time we do not have significant cause for concern at FMPS.
As a precaution, we have contacted Public Health England to seek advice regarding preventative measures we can introduce to school, in addition to our already rigorous cleaning regime. They have advised the following:
Additional cleaning of toilets/taps/toilet flusher/door handles regularly throughout the day
Supervised (where possible) hand washing with soap and water
Removal/limited use of water and sand play
If a child is showing signs of being unwell, they should be sent home at the earliest opportunity
If a child has been absent for vomiting they should not return to school until after 48 hours from the last episode
We have implemented additional cleaning hours so that we can ensure that all of these things happen. Please reinforce good hand hygiene at home so that we can limit the chances of illness.
If it becomes necessary to close the school, we will inform you via website and app.
Thank you for your support.
