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.
Unless a medical care plan has been set up by Virgin Care we are unable to administer any medication to your child. More details can be found in our Medical Policy. It is important that the school are informed immediately of any changes that may affect your childs health.
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 in 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 childs 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.
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.
