Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles

Dear Parents/Carers,


Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles


Some of you will already be aware, but for those you who are not; one of our pupils is receiving medical treatment for cancer. This puts the pupil at serious risk if exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. The best way to protect a pupil from measles is for all pupils to be immunised against measles. Please discuss measles immunisation with your GP if your child is not already vaccinated. If you suspect your child has measles you should let the school know immediately.


Our pupil is also at risk from chicken pox and would need to be given oral medication after coming in contact with anyone with the infection. Please let us know immediately if you suspect that your child has chicken pox. It is also very important that you let us know if anyone in your household has shingles. Your own child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and wellbeing of our pupil with cancer may be at serious risk.


Therefore, we are asking all our families to support us with this request and asking you to cooperate by informing the school if your child has measles, chicken pox and/or if someone in your household has shingles. We know we can rely on your help and thank you for your support.


Many thanks.


Yours sincerely,


Mr C Laker, Headteacher
