Health, Medicines, Accidents & School Nurse
It is essential that you keep us informed about medical conditions, which might affect your child’s performance or safety in school. Medicines will only be administered if prescribed by a doctor or where four or more doses a day are required. If the medicine has to be brought into school, a consent form must be completed which can be obtained from the school office. Medicines must be clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.
It is your child’s responsibility to remember to go to the medical room at the appropriate time in order to take medicines.
Please ensure that, if your child needs an inhaler or epipen in school, they have one in school that is within date.
Accidents do occur in school and we are fortunate to have a number of qualified First-Aiders. If your child is injured and requires examination by a doctor, we will try to contact you immediately. If they sustain a minor injury, particularly to the head and we feel that there could be some after effects, we will send a note home telling you what has happened. It is vitally important that all your contact details are kept up to date so that we can make immediate contact with you, if necessary.
