Well Child Policy
The return to school after the Christmas break is, unfortunately, a time when illnesses seem to be at a high. A number of staff and students have been sick over recent weeks with coughs, cold and in some cases Influenza. To try and keep everyone fit and healthy, we would like to remind everyone about our Well Child Policy. By working together, we can try and limit the spread of illness.
As a school, we have a rolling programme of Deep Cleaning and where we have a number of cases of illness in a year group, this Deep Clean is repeated. Teachers are vigilant and send children to the nurse when they see that they are unwell, and show them how to cough and sneeze without spreading germs to their friends. However, if your child is showing symptoms such as fever or a runny nose, please don’t give them medicine to allow them to get through the school day. Keep them home until they are feeling better and if you are in doubt, please take them to the doctor. This way all the other students and their teachers stay healthy and ready for learning.
This is especially important with our KS2 residential trips coming up. If your child is off school in the days before the trip, particularly if they have been diagnosed with influenza, we may ask for a medical certificate to say that they are well enough to attend the trip. If, on the morning of the trip, a child shows signs of illness, we will send them to the nurse to assess whether they are well enough to attend.
Fun Day 2019 is just around the corner
This Saturday, we will be opening our doors at 11 am for our annual Fun Day. This is always one of the highlights of the year and is a chance for our community to get together and enjoy the rides, activities, entertainment, food and drinks.
To avoid the potential difficulty of trying to find a space in the school car park on Fun Day, why not make use of our shuttle bus service and alternative parking. We will have shuttle buses running between Gateway and the Primary campus if you decide to come by BTS or park at Gateway. You can also park at MaxValu on Sukhumvit 71 (behind the store) and catch a shuttle bus from there. The third option is to park at Suk 71, the new market space accessed from Pridi 24- available from 10 am - 5 pm.
