We are now pleased to inform you that the Common Childhood Illnesses & Wellbeing guide for local parents, grandparents and carers across mid Essex is now available to download from the Essex NHS website.

The handbook is an extensive and informative guide for anyone who cares for a child aged from birth to 11 years old. It gives advice on how to spot signs of illness and what to do for minor conditions such as coughs and colds, fever, dry skin and rashes, chicken pox, bumps and bruises.

Information on mental health and wellbeing, healthy lifestyles and advice on some more serious conditions like meningitis and sepsis is also covered in the booklet. There’s also a handy section on when parents should keep your child home from school.


All children in Essex in reception to year 6 are eligible to receive a flu vaccine through the national childhood flu programme.

The vaccination team have been coming in to school during the Autumn Term.  Full information and consent forms are sent out near the time.
