Conjunctivitis (Reception & Year 2)

Dear Parents/Carers 


We have had a couple of cases of conjunctivitis in Reception and Year 2.  The symptoms are watery discharge from the eye, sometimes with a small amount of mucus. Crustiness around the eyelids upon waking in the morning, possibly swollen red eyelids.  It is recommended to see a GP or Pharmacist.  Please note the advice is if your child does not have a fever or other symptoms, on the advice of the GP they can return to school.


Kind Regards,


Mr L Chamberlain
