FAQ Illnesses

My child is feeling unwell (e.g. cough, headache, sore throat etc) Can I still send them to school?

Advice for anyone who is unwell

  • Anyone who is sick should stay home until they are well.
  • When a child has respiratory symptoms, they should stay at home and seek advice from their GP or Healthline. Staying home is key to controlling the spread of any virus in a school setting.  
  • If your child is sick with Vomiting or Diarrhea they are required to stay at home for 48 hours after the last vomiting or diarrhea episode.

Communicable Diseases

When can I send my child to school?

  • If a child has been unwell with a respiratory illness , they can return to school  24 hours after they have significantly improved and are behaving/eating normally.  If they  have a clear runny nose or dry cough without any other symptoms such as a fever, vomiting or diarrhoea, then they are unlikely to be infectious and can be considered well enough to attend school.
