Please find some information regarding Scarlet Fever.  To reassure you, we have only had two cases to date, several weeks apart. 

There are many viruses around at this time of year, and I appreciate that you may be more anxious due to the media covering the Strep A and Scarlet Fever cases almost by the hour.

Please can I remind you that if your child has a temperature (a clear sign they are fighting an infection of some sort) or is clearly not well, they should not be in school.  Please keep them off school, seek medical help if appropriate and only send them back when they are fully fit.  This way, we will help to keep everyone as safe and well as possible.

Thank you for your co-operation.
