UKHSA advice for education and childcare settings amid high levels of flu, COVID-19 and scarlet fever


As winter illnesses continue to circulate at high levels and pupils are returning to education, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has published a reminder on how to minimise the spread of illness in education and childcare settings.


UKHSA advice remains clear that children can continue to attend as normal unless they are unwell and have a high temperature. Further information on when a child is too ill for school or nursery is available.


There is no requirement to be absent from school on a precautionary basis. School staff should continue to maintain their high expectations for face-to-face attendance.

Please see the following communication sent by NHS colleagues for your information.


Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Emergency Department has been under significant, sustained pressure due to high levels of respiratory infections locally and unprecedented attendances.

Across the country, Children’s EDs are seeing approximately a 20% increase on previous record attendances, with a number of units reporting a lack of beds for paediatric admissions.

The Children’s Hospital Emergency Department is incredibly busy – those who are not seriously ill will face very long waits to be seen and may need to go elsewhere for help.


Remember, the Children’s Hospital Emergency Department can’t help with dental or eye issues.

For an eye emergency, please attend the Midland Eye Centre at Dudley Road open 9am-7pm. 


NHS 111 can help with finding and accessing an Emergency Dentist

  • Visit 111 online (for children aged 5 and over) answer questions about your symptoms on the website and they will tell you what to do next.
  • Take these simple steps to keep well this winter:
  • Wash your hands regularly just like you did during the pandemic
  • Get your flu jab and COVID-19 booster



The start of the school day

The school gates open at 8.30am and close at 8.45am.
