Please be aware ……

We would like to make you aware we now have a number of reported cases of slapped cheek syndrome in P2A. 

Unless you or your child is feeling unwell, there is no need to stay away from school once the rash has developed, as the infection is no longer contagious by this point.

However, please be aware of early symptoms and let us know immediately if your child has the infection, so other children can be spotted quickly and vulnerable people can be made aware that they may need to get medical advice.

Please follow the link for further information and advice –

Please remind your child to wash their hands regularly and bring in plenty of tissues during this winter period.

Many thanks.
