Urgent Infection Control Notice



Dear parents/carers

please help us with our infectious control policy in light of the Swine fever pandemic. By following these simple procedures.

  • If you have been to or are intending to visit Mexico or have had contact with anyone who may be going or has been; be extra vigilant for flu like symptoms and if in doubt about yourself or your children please stay at home, notify the doctor and the nursery.

We have explained to the children the importance of hand washing and this applies particularly if your child has a cold.

Used tissues are placed directly in the bin after use.

  • All door handles and surfaces are wiped down at the end of the session and during the morning with anti-bacterial wash.

  • Adults in the nursery use anti-bacterial wash on their hands.

  • Remember we are not in the main flu season as yet and the WHO(World Health Organisation) are predicting the situation to worsen after 50 days and particularly in the Autumn term, when we normally see an increase in cases of seasonal Flu.

  • If we have a reported case the nursery will shut and parents will be offered anti-viral drugs and advice.

  • Please be aware there has been an increase in the insisance of Measles in certain European holiday resorts please be extra viginant if your child has not been inoculated
