Health alert: gastroenteritis

Radford College

Radford College

From the College Nurse, Sophie Davis 

Dear Parents and Caregivers 

We have had a significant number of students across all year groups (both Junior and Secondary) complaining of symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. We ask that if your child has had symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting that they stay away from school until they are 48 hours clear of symptoms. 

Please be aware that hand sanitisers are usually ineffective against gastroenteritis, and therefore hand hygiene with soap and water should be encouraged

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Sophie Davis
