Emmer Green After school club
Infectious illness/ Disease Policy
The EGASC policy is that any child who has not attended school on that day
because of an illness will not be permitted to attend the club on that day. It is
vital that quarantine periods of 48 hours is imposed after bouts of sickness and
diarrhoea are adhered to even if the child appears perfectly well. This is to
stop infections spread throughout the club.
Parents/guardians will be notified immediately if their child has become ill
during a session and needs to go home before the end. Poorly children will be
comforted, kept safe and under close supervision until they are collected. If a
child has had to go home prematurely due to illness, they should remain at
home until they are better for at least 24 hours, or according to the times set
out in Appendix A.
EGASC staff are subject to the same quarantine conditions should they become
ill. If a child or member of staff becomes ill outside Club hours, they should
notify the EGASC manager or deputy before 9am in the morning. The minimum
exclusion periods outlined in appendix A will then come into operation.
If any infectious or communicable disease is detected on the Club’s premises,
EGASC staff will inform parents/guardians personally at the time of collecting
their child(ren) and display a written note outlining the infection by the signing
out register.
EGASC is committed to sharing as much information as possible about the
source of any infections and the steps being taken to remove it.
Ofsted will also be informed of any infectious or communicable diseases
discovered in the Club’s premises by the EGASC chair.
