When should my child return to school after an illness?

As a parent or guardian, you know when your child is ill and also when they’re feeling better.  But it’s important to take steps to make sure they’re well enough to return to school, but also that they’re not at risk of spreading any infection or illness.

Through ongoing work with local schools, NHS South Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Vale Royal CCG have been told by schools and parents that the guidance for when a child needs to be kept off school can be complicated. We’ve picked this very useful Infographic from their web page so full credit to their work. Some of the condition might vary due to local policies so please check with your school.
