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 or a First Aider, 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, the Health & Welfare Coordinator, 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 which needs to be taken during the school day you must notify the Health & Welfare Coordinator. Any medicine, including spare epi-pens and inhalers, must be handed in, in the original packaging, labelled with your child's name. A form must also be completed (see below) to accompany the medicine.
NO medication, other than an 'epi-pen' or asthma inhaler, should be carried around school as this presents a danger to other students (this includes all painkillers).
If your child has a chronic health condition (e.g. diabetes, CP) please contact our Health & Welfare Co-ordinator, who will discuss completing an Individual Health Care Plan (IHCP) specific to your child’s needs.
