Accident and Illness
Report your child's absence
Children must not have medication in school, unless prescribed by their Doctor. Prior to giving prescribed medications, a permission form must be completed and signed by a Parent / Guardian. Asthma pumps are kept in class and children are expected to administer by themselves, under adult supervision. The school office has an emergency inhaler that will be used if necessary, provided parental agreement has been received. Other prescribed medication is kept in the school office. Cough/throat sweets are not allowed in school.
If your child requires antibiotics during school hours four times a day, a dose can be left with the school office staff, accompanied by written instructions. A member of staff will oversee the administration of medication. If you wish to discuss any special arrangements (i.e. relating to medication, medical conditions or illness), please email the school office who will pass this information on to the relevant member of staff.
Sickness and/or Diarrhoea
When a child is absent due to vomiting and/or diarrhoea, please ensure that he/she is symptom free for at least 48 hours before returning to school.
Please refer to our Trust Policy - “Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions”, which can be found below.
