We have qualified First Aiders in school, who will attend to any child who requires First Aid during school time.
All reported accidents are recorded together with the child’s explanation, and details of any First Aid given. A copy of this will be handed to the responsible adult collecting the child or sent home in the child’s book bag at the end of the day.
If an accident causes particular concern, the child will be observed carefully whilst parents are contacted without delay.
Each year parents are asked to sign a pupil contact form detailing any allergies or medical conditions the school needs to know about.
The school should be notified if any child has an infectious condition, such as headlice, worms, etc. We can then ask all parents to be vigilant and hopefully reduce the risk of the problem spreading.
We encourage parents to check their child’s hair regularly for headlice, and use special treatments, if necessary.
