Updated Guidance from Public Health England
The Health protection in schools and other childcare facilities guidance was updated in December 2018. Some key messages include:
- promote immunisation (NB this includes children and staff)
- promptly exclude the unwell child or member of staff
- check that effective handwashing is being carried out routinely
If you are notified of a case of infectious disease in a pupil or staff member, please report it to your local Health Protection Team (HPT) as soon as possible as not all infections require exclusion. Your local team can also give you additional advice and support as needed.
