This is to inform you that there are a number of cases of head lice in school. Please could you check your child’s hair and take any necessary action. There is no need to keep your child away from school as long as they have been treated.
As a school we would like to support the ‘O nce a week, take a peek initiative’. Although this particular campaign is endorsed by a brand of headlice remover, we are not interested in advertising the brand. Please find attached a copy of the leaflet advising parents/carers about headlice, how to check for them and the difference methods of treating them, if they are discovered. Thank you very much for your support and cooperation.
