Dear St. Mary's Parents and Carers, 

On Tuesday St Martin, Year 2 led our assembly and explained how we could all be little Saints. Well done St Martin.

Next Tuesday St Francis will be basing their assembly on the harvest and we will be giving thanks for all that God gives us, especially the food we eat. we will also be thinking about those less fortunate than us and will be donating food to the local food bank so if you have any tinned or packet food that you wish to donate, please give them to your children to bring in. Any donations would be gratefully accepted.

We have two more special occasions before the half term break; on Wednesday, Reception will be welcoming their families into their classes for their welcome liturgies. St Andrew is first at 9.30 a.m. and then St George’s liturgy will be at 2.30 p.m.
Have a very happy weekend
Miss O’Callaghan Headteacher

Unfortunately we are approaching the Norovirus (Winter Vomiting Virus) season so here are some tips of what to look out for and what to do.
What is Norovirus?
Noroviruses is virus that causes “stomach flu,” or vomiting and diarrhoea in people and very easily passes from person to person.

Symptoms
The symptoms are vomiting and diarrhoea.

How long does my child need to be excluded from school?
Children who have been infected should not go to school for 48 hours after their symptoms have gone away.

What treatment is available?
Norovirus infection cannot be treated with antibiotics. This is because antibiotics work to fight bacteria and not viruses. There is no specific treatment for Norovirus apart from letting the illness run its course. It is important to offer plenty of drinks (water, dilute fruit juice) to your child to pre- vent dehydration.

Can Norovirus infections be prevented?

You can decrease your chance of coming in contact with N oroviruses by following these preventive steps:

  •  Frequently washing hands.

  •   Carefully washing fruits and vegetables.

  •   Thoroughly clean contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness, with hot soapy water, remem- bering that vomiting sprays infectious particles too small to seen by the naked eye over a wide area

  • Immediately remove and wash clothing or linens that may be contaminated with virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap).

Flu Immunisation
I understand that quite a lot of people have had difficulties logging on to the NHS booking website. Mrs Escrader has spoken to the nurses and they have agreed to come along before school on Tuesday morning to help familes book. They will be in the KS1 Playground next Tuesday morning from 8.50 a.m.
