Minor accidents are normally dealt with by Teaching Assistants who are First Aid trained. Notes will be sent home when there has been a head injury or a more serious accident. Parents are contacted as soon as possible in the event of an emergency. It is, therefore, very important that you let us know immediately of any change in contact or emergency numbers.
It is vitally important that you inform the school if your child has a medical problem, allergies, or asthma. In the event of this problem occurring the staff can then deal with it in the correct way.
If your child is ill, it is better that they stay at home with you, especially if they are taking medicine. If they are fit enough for school but still need to receive prescribed medication a member of the school staff can administer it. A permission slip must be filled in prior to any medication being left on the premises. Any medicines handed over must be clearly labelled with your child’s name and instructions for administering the medication. However we are unable to administer medicine bought over the counter at the chemist.
Our School Nurse visits during each term to carry out basic health checks
with the new intake of children and to attend medicals. They also carry out height and weight measurements on older children.
