Communications moving to Weduc

We are switching all our communications  (notices, information, calendar etc) to Weduc as of Easter. The website will continue to show general information and the statutory requirements.

The weekly newsletter will cease but all information relevant to your child will be available in the Newsfeed and in Notices, you will get notifications too.

Should you need help getting on the Weduc app please pop in and we can help you.

The app is about to be updated and rebranded to Reach More Parents by Weduc which looks really good.

It is really important that you keep an eye on the app so you know what is happening.

As we no longer send text messages all message will come through the app (which of course you can also view on your browser) we do strongly recommend putting the app on your home page so you will see when you have a new notification.

Weduc app will be updated in the Easter holidays to be called ‘Reach More Parents’

New Reach More Parents App is coming!

Weduc has redesigned the App for Reach More Parents with major enhancements to the layout, accessibility, and general ease of use.

What do I need to do as a parent? If your phone has automatic updates turned on, there is nothing you need to do, as the app will update automatically on 03/04/2023. If you do not have automatic updates turned on, you will need to re-download the app from the App Store if you have an iPhone or the Google Play Store if you have an Android.

Can I still access the same features? Yes. The features you already use such as Newsfeed, Absence Reporting and Messaging are still accessible.

What’s new? You can find a PDF document attached which will give you a detailed breakdown of everything that has changed in the app.


Information regarding Scarlet Fever

As per the media reports regarding an increase in scarlet fever cases please read the following information below:

Signs and symptoms of scarlet fever:

Scarlet fever is a common childhood infection caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, or group A streptococcus (GAS). The early symptoms of scarlet fever include sore throat, headache, fever, nausea and vomiting. After 12 to 48 hours the characteristic red, pinhead rash develops, typically first appearing on the chest and stomach, then rapidly spreading to other parts of the body, and giving the skin a sandpaper-like texture. The scarlet rash may be harder to spot on darker skin, although the ‘sandpaper’ feel should be present. Patients typically have flushed cheeks and pallor around the mouth. This may be accompanied by a ‘strawberry tongue’. As the child improves peeling of the skin can occur.

As per national Guidance on Infection Control in Schools and other Child Care Settings, children and adults with suspected scarlet fever should not attend nursery / school / work for 24 hours after the commencement of appropriate antibiotic treatment.

Scarlet fever can be a serious illness, but thanks to antibiotics, it’s less common than it used to be and easier to treat, for some children it may be mild.

There’s no evidence to suggest that getting scarlet fever during pregnancy will harm an unborn baby.
