Health and Safety

Health and Welfare

Children should normally only be sent to school if they are capable of undertaking all school activities. If a child has a bout of sickness and/or diarrhoea they must be kept at home for 48 hours.

If your child requires regular medication or treatment for any medical condition, it is important that you inform the school so that the relevant procedures can be put in place.

If your child uses an inhaler you will be asked to complete a form and provide an asthma plan from your doctors surgery. You are responsible to ensure that your childs medicines are all up to date.

Illness at School

When your child joins us you will be asked to provide details of who to contact in an emergency together with the name and address of your doctor. Should your child be unfortunate enough to have an accident or become ill we shall make every effort to contact you immediately, whilst taking all possible steps to ensure your child’s well being and safety.

We will let parents know if the accident involved a head injury. This may be in the form of a telephone call or a text message.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR DAYTIME CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER IS KEPT UP TO DATE IN THE SCHOOL’S RECORDS.

Medical

The school nurse visits annually to carry out checks on hearing and vision for all of our reception children. Your permission will be sought prior to any visit.

Flu vaccinations are delivered in accordance with statutory government advice, which we are given annually.

The school can refer to the school nurse service to seek advice on a range of medical conditions. Your permission will always be sought in advance.
