School reopened following suspected norovirus outbreak

HENLEY-in-Arden High School has reopened following a suspected Norovirus outbreak.

The school experienced ‘an extraordinarily high level of absence’ as a number of pupils suffered symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea.

It was closed on Thursday and Friday while a four-day deep clean took place into the weekend.

Pupils and staff have been advised to stay away from school for 72 hours after they last experienced symptoms.

Although the outbreak began over the previous weekend, staff believed the school had become contaminated.
