Medical Issues

MEDICAL AND WELFARE

After seeking advice from the LA in October 2003 our policy for administering medicines changed and in line with many other schools in the County we decided it would no longer be possible to administer prescribed medicines to pupils.  Parents are, of course, more than welcome to come up to the school at lunchtime to administer the medicine themselves.  In case of emergency, e.g. for medicines provided for emergency treatment such as reliever inhalers for asthmatic pupils or glucose tablets for diabetics, epipens for the treatment of anaphylaxis shock etc. we will of course, continue to play our part.

 

More and more children seem to be suffering from asthma and we appreciate that they must have their medication readily at hand. Again we would ask parents to provide us with as much information as possible please about any conditions which affect the well-being of your child.  It is imperative that up-to-date information is logged with school. 

As we have a number of children and adults in school with severe nut and kiwi fruit allergies we ask that no food or snacks containing nuts, peanuts or kiwi fruit be brought into school.

The school nurse is a regular and welcome visitor to school. She is responsible for monitoring the children's development, carrying out health interviews, checking height, weight and vision and dealing with occasional problems which arise. She organises a regular drop-in session to discuss any concerns you may have about your child's health. We also have regular visits from the audiometric nurse to check children's hearing.
 
If your child is sick we ask parents to telephone school on the first day of absence.  An answering machine is left on overnight to take messages from you.  This should be followed with a note from you when the child is well and returns to school.  

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY


The staff and governors make regular inspections of the premises to ensure the school environment is as safe as possible.

Several members of staff hold up-to-date first aid certificates and all staff receive some basic training.
