The purpose of this booklet is to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS.

Tackling head lice is not a school’s responsibility, but by taking some simple steps to educate our parents and carers we can have a big impact on outbreak prevention. We will try to keep the school nurse team informed of any concerns and seek guidance from them accordingly.
The school is restricted in the action it can take and the guidance for parents, schools and other professionals can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/head-lice-pediculosis
The Facts of Lice
- Lice are wingless insects, living and feeding on the blood from the scalp.
- Nits are actually the empty egg cases left on the hair after the lice have hatched.
- Adult lice can live for as long as a month, with females laying several eggs a day. Research indicates that one untreated female louse can lead to an infestation of 1,000 head lice in just a month.
- Lice can only spread by head to head contact.
- The best known symptom of head lice is the itching, but only 30 per cent are aware of it. It can be uncomfortable, affect sleep and even affect a child’s confidence.
- Lice have no preference to clean or dirty hair and can only survive on human heads. They can’t live on bedding, clothes or pets.
