Exclusion and Infection Control



FAO All Primary Schools

Main News Story

This is a reminder for all primary schools that during the upcoming SATs period, your usual exclusion, infection control and notification processes for unwell children should remain in place and unchanged.


These should reflect Public Health England guidance on managing infectious diseases and describe prompt action essential to protecting pupils and preventing the spread of infection.


If you are notified of a case of infectious disease in a pupil or staff member, please report it to your local Health Protection Team (HPT) as soon as possible as not all infections require exclusion. Your local team can also give you additional advice and support as needed.
