Hand Hygiene - Information for Parents

As we go into winter, common illnesses can keep children and teenagers away from their classmates and studies. One of the best things we can all do to avoid illness is to practice good hand hygiene.

Good hand hygiene helps stop infections from spreading, which means less disrupted learning time.

Teach your child to wash hands properly for 20 seconds and stay away from others when sick. The e-bug resources for all ages can help you to explain and discuss hygiene habits – and why they are important - to your child or teenager.

To avoid catching bugs or passing it on to others wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water. This is most important following an episode of diarrhoea or vomiting, after using the toilet, before eating or preparing food, after changing nappies, as well as cleaning up vomit or diarrhoea. Alcohol-based hand sanitisers are not effective against some infections.

Anyone who has diarrhoea and/or vomiting should stay at home. Do not return to work or send children to school until 48 hours after the symptoms have stopped and do not visit your GP or hospital while symptomatic. If you are concerned about your symptoms, talk to your GP by phone, contact NHS 111 or visit the NHS web pages. For useful handwashing tips please have a look at the following NHS video

Important Information - Measles and MMR

Due to an increase in measles cases across the country this year, including some recently in the North West, the local authority are encouraging everyone to check that they and their children have had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine.  The MMR vaccine is a free, safe and effective way to protect against measles, mumps and rubella.

If anyone is unsure about their vaccination status, or if they need to book a vaccine, they are advised to contact their GP practice to check and book an appointment. There is no upper age limit for vaccination. 

For further information, please see the below letter to parents/carers and flyer from the local authority.
