Head Lice Policy Information
Head lice is a common problem that affects most people at sometime
The aim of the policy is to reduce the problem for you as Parents/Carers and for us as a school.
We will share information with Parents/Carers to be vigilant in checking their child's hair.
If a pupil in school is found to have a live moving louse, their Parent/Carer will be informed (in confidence) so that they can treat the infection.
If the head lice infection continues, we will send out a confidential letter to the pupils Parent/Carer; information may also be shared with the school Nurse so that advice and guidance can be provided. The school Nurse and/or other agencies will be informed of extreme, persistent cases of head lice infection. A pupil with head lice will not be excluded from school.
