Medicines, First Aid & Illness
It is recommended by our professional bodies that no medicines should be administered to children by staff.
Children who require and asthma inhaler must have the inhaler clearly labelled with their name. They must be able to administer the inhaler themselves; they will be supervised by a member of staff.
Minor injuries, cuts, scratches etc will be dealt with in school by our First Aid trained staff. ALL head injuries, however minor, will be reported to parents/carers by telephone. A First Aid slip will be provided whenever treatment has been administered.
If your child sustains an injury requiring more than basic First Aid or becomes ill in school, a parent/carer is contacted. It is therefore vitally important that we have up to date telephone numbers and additional emergency numbers for friends or family members should we need to contact you.
The School Nurse is in regular contact with the school and is available to advise and talk to you on request.
Head lice are unfortunate and unwelcome guests of every school! As a school we must rely on the parents to check and comb their child’s hair regularly and treat with lotion if necessary – children should not be kept offschool because of nits or head lice as treatment can be done in the evening.
