Head lice management is a complex issue for schools, and head lice infections can be difficult to manage. The responsibility for detecting and treating head lice rests primarily with the parents but it is important for them to be given practical advice and support.
The Head Lice Management Toolkit has been developed for schools to assist in the management of head lice. The Toolkit supports the development of school based policy on head lice.
