Advice from NHS Lothian in Preventing Spread of Sickness and Diarrhoea

If your child is affected with vomiting and/or diarrhoea we would like to remind you that they should remain off school until they have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.  This advice applies at all times.  So for instance if your child becomes unwell over the weekend they should not attend school on Monday even if by then they feel well.

Ensure that all members of your family wash their hands frequently using warm water and liquid soap, especially after using the toilet and before eating or preparing food.

Friday Mornings

We’re looking to develop our Friday mornings for parents to become more involved.

If your child is receiving their Bronze Award please join us from bell time at 8:50 for tea or coffee with our Pupil Support Officers until the awards ceremony at 9:15. Just come along if you’re free.

Our Weekly Golden Mile is 10:00. Walk alongside your child’s class and join in the buzz. We’ll gradually extend beyond the school grounds as more parents join us. Again, join us for refreshment afterwards. Weather dependent, just come along if you’re free.

Could you take a small group of children for a Big Golden Time activity? It’s an hour from 11:10. What practical skills could you share ? Would you rather help a member of staff with their activity ? All help greatly appreciated. We need to process your application through Scotland’s PVG for this and whilst it’s simple, unfortunately it takes time. However we’d really welcome your help.

Please email admin@ferryhill.edin.sch.uk if you can help (let us know what you can do) and we’ll get back in touch.
