Whiteley Primary School

Advice on Ticks

Whiteley is situated in an area of the South Coast prone to ticks and it is important to be particularly vigilant around the months of May and June. Whilst we do not have any long grassy areas on the school site, many children walk through woods on their way to school, or make use of our shaded areas beneath the trees during the day – habitats particularly enjoyed by ticks. Below is information for parents about preventative measures you can take, as well as advice regarding what to do if you find a tick on your child.
