Health and Illness in School

Information on Health and Illness in School


At St Thomas More we believe that information about keeping your child healthy is important especially as coughs colds and more are a common part of growing up. On this page you will find links to information on common illnesses as well as less common but important childhood illnesses. There are also links to permission forms for medicine administration in school.

You can also find links for healthy eating and healthy living.

Diarrhoea or sickness  Please keep your child at home until 48 hours after the symptoms have cleared to prevent other children at school from becoming ill.
