Whooping Cough

Information from NHS website 10/05/2024

Vaccination is crucial, as whooping cough can spread very easily through coughing and sneezing. If your child does catch it, they'll need to stay off school or nursery for 5-days after starting antibiotics, or 3 weeks from the start of their symptoms if they haven't had the treatment.

School officials may request that you keep your child home from school and activities, such as sports or play groups, until your child has been on appropriate antibiotics for five days to treat whooping cough. Ask your child's doctor for a note that states your child has whooping cough.
