Medical and First Aid
The school has a dedicated and fully qualified First Aider, who is available at all break times and lunch times. There is currently a vacancy for this role and in the interim this is being overseen by Mrs Bridget Nicholls.
The medical co-ordinator manages all health and medicines arrangements. Parents/carers who wish for their child to receive any prescribed medicines should complete the necessary form (available at Reception or on our website) giving precise instructions. The medicine must be in the original container and clearly labelled with the child’s name. All medicines are kept in the medical room during the school day.
Occasionally children become ill or have an accident at school. Where this is deemed serious, we like to be able to contact you or a nominated person by telephone, either to inform you or for you to collect your child as soon as possible. (Please remember to inform us when there are any changes to your contact numbers.) Should a child require medical attention and we cannot contact you, we will take them to hospital and continue to try and contact the parent/carer. For all injuries that give us concerns, including all knocks to the head, parents/carers will be contacted. This may be via telephone call or, in the instance of a slight and accidental knock, with a head-bump form. Please find our policies here.
If your child suffers from asthma, please fill in a Parental Agreement for School to Administer Medicine Form (see document below) and we will be able to provide appropriate support for your child.
Please let us know if your child has a dental/medical appointment. Please sign your child out of school at reception when taking them for an appointment and sign back in on their return.
