Slapped Cheek Syndrome
There are two confirmed cases of 'slapped cheek' in school, in years 1 and 4.
Search for ‘slapped cheek’ on Google to open the NHS Choices page which explains the symptoms and complications.
If you or someone in your family have been in close contact with someone who goes on to develop Slapped Cheek syndrome, and are pregnant, or have a suppressed immune system, please ensure you are aware of the symptoms and contact your GP for advice.
Once a child develops the rash they are no longer contagious and can be in school.
