Head lice and nits are very common in young children and their families. They do not have anything to do with dirty hair and are picked up by head-to-head contact.
It is important that you treat your child's hair effectively to avoid spreading these annoying critters.
Please see link to the NHS website for advice on what to look for and treatment
The School Nursing team support dental care and regularly visit schools to talk to the children and answer any questions they have.
