Rise in Scarlet Fever Notifications


The Kent Health Protection Team have asked us to make you aware that there has been a rise in scarlet fever notifications locally, as well as in other parts of the country.  The attached factsheet has information on signs/symptoms, mode of transmission and length of exclusion which may be useful.

Public Health England have also produced guidance for schools on infection control which you may also find useful:

Scarlett Fever Q & A Factsheet







We appreciate that some parents may wish to bring their dogs onto the school site when dropping off or collecting their children from school.  However, in the interests of health and safety, parents are reminded that dogs (other than service dogs) are not permitted on the school grounds - this includes dogs being carried by adults.  

We would also request that parents do not leave their dogs tied up to the school fence near to the school gates as this is also a health & safety concern. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
