Ticks - information for parents

We have had some reports of children coming home with ticks. Unfortunately, this is an annual problem and part of being in a rural location.  Short of stopping children playing on the field- which was recently cut  -  or making them wear long trousers and wellies,  there is little we can do about ticks. 

Our advice would be to regularly check for ticks when your children get home. The document below is the  Public Health England information for parents about tick bite risks and tells you all you need to know about how to keep your children safe.
