Policy for supporting Children in school with Medical Conditions


A Review of the Grove school ‘Policy for supporting Children in school with medical conditions’ has recently taken place in line with Public Health guidance September 2018.

The most significant change within our policy is the Diarrhoea and Vomiting guidelines which we have highlighted below.

Exclusion from school - Whilst symptomatic and until your child is fully clear of vomiting and diarrhoea.

Please keep your child away from school for 48 hours after the last bout of vomiting or diarrhoea. Please ring the school office to notify us if you child is ill.

Seek further advice from your local health protection team if unsure.

Below there is a link to a handy booklet which has illustrations, photographs of common childhood diseases and supportive guidance. A booklet has been printed and a copy is in the school office if you are unable to download and look at the booklet yourselves.
