First Aid & Medicines

 First Aid

Simple first aid is given at school when necessary. If an accident needs hospital attention we will contact you immediately. If your child receives a bump to the head, we will ring you as well as filling out an accident slip. Please ensure that contact information is always up to date with the office.

 Medicines

If your child needs medication during the day, we ask that a parental consent form is completed. A nominated member of staff will be responsible for the correct administration of medication to children.

Headlice

Although they are very tiny, they can certainly be frustrating to deal with. There is a very useful video available on the treatment of headlice on the NHS Direct website.

We have a number of parents ringing up regarding different illnesses. Firstly, we would always recommend that you take your child to the doctors. Once an illness has been diagnosed all we do in school is following the guidance from Public Health. We have posted the document below to help you.
