Dear Parents / Carers,

‘Slapped cheek’ (Information taken from the NHS website)

There have been a few cases of ‘slapped cheek’ in school recently. Slapped cheek syndrome is a viral infection that is most common in children, although it can affect people of any age. It usually causes a bright red rash on the cheeks. Although the rash can look alarming, slapped cheek syndrome is normally a mild infection that clears up by itself in one to three weeks.

The children can continue to come to school if they are feeling well enough. However this virus is very serious for women in the early stages of pregnancy.  The infection in pregnancy carries a risk of causing miscarriagestillbirth or other complications; however, this risk is small and most pregnant women will already be immune.

If you are, or may be pregnant we recommend you consult your GP. Due to this situation Mrs Pearson is currently not at school.

YouTube Videos

It has come to our attention that several children are possibly watching inappropriate material on YouTube. Unfortunately it seems there are several links from ‘Minecraft’ related videos to others which have quite scary and unsuitable content. Please can we remind you to check what your child is watching or has access to. If you would like advice on how to protect you child online you can contact school or have a look at the following websites –
