Some children at Broughton Primary School are currently off ill with vomiting and/or diarrhoea and fever. The symptoms are suggestive of viral gastroenteritis (also known as norovirus or winter vomiting disease) which is known to be currently circulating in the community. It is usually a short lived, self-limiting illness from which children recover quickly.
Broughton Primary School and NHS Lothian Health Protection Team are working together to monitor the situation. Please find a letter attached below with advice on this matter.
