    COMMUNICABLE DISEASES

     

     

    YSGOL RHIW-BECHAN POLICY ON COMMUNICABLE DISEASES IN SCHOOLS

    A child should not be accepted at the beginning of a school session if it is obvious that he/she isn’t well and if a child develops symptoms of any infectious illness during a session.  Reasonable steps should be taken to avoid cross-infection.  In order to operate a responsible policy towards preventing the spread of infection, it is recommended that the following guidelines regarding exclusion periods are followed.


    Note that the LEA don’t recommend exclusion for pupils who are infested with headlice.  However, it is school policy to take reasonable steps to avoid cross-infection.  Therefore, when headlice are detected parents should be contacted and pupils sent home for treatment.  They should only return when there is no evidence of live lice on the child.

    Teachers should consult the headteacher or acting headteacher before excluding a pupil.

    Please find below guidance on exclusion periods for communicable diseases.

    Eye Infections

    Please do not send your child to school until the infection has cleared.

    Sickness and Diarrhoea

    Your child must not attend school for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.

    Chicken Pox

    Your child must not attend school 6 days from the appearance of the rash or until spots have scabbed over.

    German Measles (Rubella)

    Your child must not attend school for 4 days from the appearance of the rash.

    Measles

    Your child must not attend the school for 7 days from the appearance of the rash.

    Mumps

    Your child must not attend the school for 10 days or until the swelling has gone down.

    Whooping Cough

    Yourchild must not attend school until both the cough and whooping have ceased for 14 days.

    Skin Infection eg. Impetigo

    Medical advice needs to be sought and treatment given.  Where practical, the infection needs to be covered to avoid infection through contact.

    Slapped Cheek (Fifth) Disease

    • This is a viral illness that usually affects children, but can also affect adults.
    • Symptoms include fever, rash (the cheeks often have a bright red “slapped cheek” (appearance) and sometimes joint pains.
    • Transmission is from person to person by respiratory droplets.
    • The incubation period is usually between 13-18 days.
    • The infectious period is from 7 days before the onset of the rash.  Once the rash appears, a person is  no longer infectious.
    • Children who are immunocompromised or have certain types of anaemias can have more severe symptoms.
    • Occasionally Parvovirus can affect an unborn baby.  If a woman is exposed early in pregnancy (before 20 weeks) she should inform her GP and whoever is providing her antenatal care.
