Children who are ill should not be sent to school.
Parents are asked that the school is made aware of any pupils’ medical needs.
The school employs a policy on the administration of medicines. Please make an appointment with the Principal if you need to discuss this issue. (Please see the school’s policy on the Administration of Medication on the policy section of this website)
Requests to remain indoors at break times should only be made in exceptional circumstances.
Please check your child’s hair regularly for head lice. If there is an outbreak of head lice in a class, all parents of pupils in that class are informed by note, and asked to take immediate action to treat the infestation.
Accidents occur despite supervision. Minor accidents are treated at school. Slight cuts and grazes are normally treated by cleaning the cut with an antiseptic wipe and applying a plaster to the wound.
In the event of an accident/child becoming ill, every possible effort will be made to contact the pupil’s parents or persons delegated to take responsibility for the pupil.
Please ensure that the school’s pupil information form, giving details of home/work phone numbers, is kept up to date.Non co-operation in this matter could result in a delay in having your child attended to medically, should the need arise.Please ensure that an alternative contact person has been nominated and that they live locally.
(There is a facility for parents to take out insurance to cover medical expenses incurred as a result of an accident at school. Details of this scheme are circulated to parents in September.)
