It is very important that you advise the school if your child suffers from any allergies, including food allergies, or from any other medical condition. Parents are required to notify the school office immediately if their child has any infectious disease such as rubella, conjunctivitis, head lice, impetigo, measles, mumps or ringworm.
If your child is taking a prescribed medication, this can be arranged via the school office providing the parent has sought the permission of the Head of School and has filled out and signed the necessary Permission to Administer Medicine in School.
The School Nurse visits the School regularly and is always available to meet parents by arrangement. Children are given height, weight and dental checks at various intervals in their primary school career
Please let the office staff and class teacher know if your child has asthma. We have a storage place for pumps in medical boxes within each class. Please clearly name any pumps. Inhalers are always taken on trips.
Unfortunately, part of school life is getting to know head lice, so please check your child’s head regularly! We recommend you adopt the preventative bug busting technique of regular combing with conditioner, using a fine-toothed comb available from most chemists. Please see the following: Headlice Advice leaflet.
Illness During the Day
If your child becomes ill during the day, or has a significant accident, we will always contact you, having taken the necessary steps ourselves to ensure your child is safe and cared for. We have several trained first aiders on the staff team.
It is vital that we have your up to date contact details at all times, particularly mobile telephone numbers, and that someone is able, if necessary, to take your child home.
