Porl E gif

The Porl-E competition ran across schools in south east Essex from November to December 2019. The aim was to get key audiences such as children to think about how they might stay well during winter. The narrative included a story about ‘Porl-E’, a nasty germ that causes upset tummies, colds, and flu.

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries. The winners have now been announced, and include the following schools:

  • Our Lady of Ransom, Rayleigh
  • Thorpe Hall School, Southend-on-Sea
  • Porters Grange Primary School and Nursery, Southend-on-Sea
  • Greenways Primary School, Southend-on-Sea

We have developed an NHS digital storybook with the winning entries which includes lots of tips and tricks about staying well and preventing the spread of illnesses during winter.

Healthcare professionals came together to provide a guide to three common childhood health ailments that parents can use to self-treat, visit their GP, or call NHS111 and know what to do in an emergency. The three illnesses are:

  • Diarrhoea and Vomiting
  • Bronchiolitis (not just a cold, but an infection of the lower airways)
  • Head Injury
