Scarlet Fever & iGAS

Wednesday 7th Dec 2022

You may have heard in the news about the tragic deaths following serious infections from invasive group A strep (iGAS). Both nationally and locally, there has been higher cases of scarlet fever which if left untreated, can lead to more serious infections. As a response to this, we have introduced further hygiene measures such as an increase in hand washing and wiping down of shared surfaces. Children and adults with suspected scarlet fever should not attend nursery or school until 24 hours after starting appropriate antibiotic treatment. Full symptoms are available here.

If you suspect that your child may have scarlet fever, you should consult your GP for advice immediately before returning to school. Further information can be found here:

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr P Wilson
