Should your child feel ill, or be injured, in school they should report this to Main Reception (either in person or via their teacher/form tutor/duty member of staff).
Students can talk to our Health & Welfare Co-ordinator, who will decide on the best course of action.
If your child is injured at school, or is so ill they need to go home, a first aider or one of the office staff will contact you.
Under no circumstances should students contact parents/carers themselves to request medication or ask to be collected from school.
If your child takes regular medication, or is prescribed medicine by the Doctor, you must notify school straightaway. NO medication, other than 'epi-pens' and asthma inhalers, should be carried around school as this presents a danger to other students.
Therefore any medicine, other than epi-pens and inhalers, must be handed into reception, in the original packaging, labelled with your child's name. A form must also be completed (see below) to accompany the medicine.
If your child has a chronic health condition (e.g. diabetes, CP) please make an appointment to see our Health & Welfare Co-ordinator, who will assist you in drawing up an Individual Health Care Plan (IHCP) specific to your child and the school.
