Headlice are a problem across society. 

As a school:

  • We recognise that headlice infestation, particularly when repeated, can cause great distress. 
  • We request that parents check their child’s hair regularly, using the combing method described in this leaflet and inform us as soon as they discover any headlice.
  • We send letters or leaflets out to parents when we have been informed that there is a case of headlice.
  • We refer families to the school nurse for further advice or support.
