Dear Parent,

We are writing to inform you that a case of head lice has, once again, been reported in the Lower School.

This letter has been sent to all parents in the Lower School as cases of head lice have become more prevalent recently.  We ask that all parents check their children and all family members before taking any required action.

Head lice are a common problem which can affect anyone, regardless of hair colour, length or cleanliness. They are most common among children and can spread across families and classes, if they are not dealt with quickly .

If you are worried about head lice, or you want further information please contact your pharmacist or visit This nationally recognised  website gives details about what head lice look like, how to treat them and how to prevent future outbreaks.


Thank you for your cooperation.


Kind regards


Anne Welch
