Accidents happen in school as they do elsewhere in the community. We are able to provide first aid where necessary.
If your child is taken ill at school or has an accident, it is important that we can get in touch with you, please ensure school has at least two emergency contacts and these are updated if circumstances or details change.
Please make sure we have your correct address and telephone numbers for home and work and the name and address of a friend or relative who we could contact if we cannot get through to you. At present we text home if a child has a head bump, they will also wear a red wrist band following an incident so everyone is aware there has been a head bump. Children will also come home with a bump note, this will detail the first aid which they have had and how the accident occurred.
If any incidents or illnesses that occur are more serious you will receive a phone call from us.
Medication in school
The school does not have an obligation to administer medicines but if it is necessary for your child to take medication during the day, we can only do so if it is prescribed by a doctor and parents complete a form giving details of the medicine, the dosage and frequency.
All items must be in the original packaging, labelled with the child’s name. Children who are on antibiotics for short periods of time will have a tracking document which is signed by the administer of medicine and a witness. We will also ask parents to sign this tracker too.
For children who have longer term medical conditions, please speak to the school office and we will complete a healthcare plan to ensure we have the full information on your child’s condition and how we can support them best in school.
