Parents, grandparents and carers across mid Essex are now able to seek guidance from a new advice booklet for when their child becomes ill. The school also has access to a school nurse. If you would like to speak to the school nurse about your child's health, please contact the school and ask for your details to be passed on or contact the school nursing team via the Carousel Children's Centre on 01376 556863.
The Common Childhood Illnesses and Wellbeing handbook is an extensive and informative guide for anyone who cares for a child aged from birth to 11 years old. It gives advice on how to spot signs of illness and what to do for minor conditions such as coughs and colds, fever, dry skin and rashes, chicken pox, bumps and bruises.
Information on mental health and wellbeing, healthy lifestyles and advice on some more serious conditions like meningitis and sepsis is also covered in the booklet. There’s also a handy section on when you should keep your child home from school.
You can download the guide by clicking on the PDF icon below. You might also like to have a look at the advice for schools from Public Health England because this gives some useful information about how long children should stay away from school, if at all, with different medical conditions.
