Headlice Campaign - Once a Week Take a Peek!

Headlice Campaign - Once a Week Take a Peek!

The school is launching a new anti headlice campaign called "Once a Week Take a Peek". See the News tab for more information

This emphasises the importance of everyone checking the family's hair for headlice every week

All children will bring home a leaflet advising parents about headlice, how to check for them and the different methods of treating them, if they are discovered. Please keep these leaflets safe for future reference as we do not plan to send these out again routinely.

Further information can be found at this website www.onceaweektakeapeek.com

If you should find headlice in your child's hair it is essential that you let the school office know. Please do not be embarrassed about this as headlice are a normal part of life and not something to be worried, panicked or ashamed about. The school will inform other parents of the class that there has been a case of headlice by letter or text. Once treated the children are able to be in school.

It would be wonderful if we could make this campaign a success and get rid of the nuisance of headlice, so please take the time to read the leaflet and get into the routine of taking a peek every week!
