We have been notified that a sibling of a child in Reception has been diagnosed with viral meningitis. This is the more common and less serious form and can be treated with antibiotics but tends to get better on it's own within 7 - 10 days. The risk of someone spreading the infection to others is generally low but we felt that it was important to make parents aware. I'm sure you would join us in wishing the child and his family a speedy recovery. For more information and signs to look for if you are concerned, please access the NHS website.
