Can children with cystic fibrosis attend the same school?

Can you tell me if two children with cystic fibrosis can attend the same school?

We would discourage this in a small school as it is very difficult to keep children segregated. However with a larger secondary school it can be managed. Children with cystic fibrosis need to be segregated due to multi resistant bacteria in their lungs which is very contagious. These guidelines are worldwide and supported by CF trust.
