If your child requires medicine to be administered during the school day please visit the school office to complete the “permission to administer medicine” form. Please note the following guidelines must be met in order for the school to administer medicine to your child.
We keep Calpol and Piriton in School for emergency use.
Common Childhood Illnesses
As a school we follow the NHS guidelines for all common childhood illnesses. Please click the link below to see the NHS guidance for returning to school after your child has been absent with a common childhood illness.
We have many members of staff who are qualified first aiders. When your child starts school, we ask you to give us up-to-date details of any medical conditions your child may have. It is your responsibility to inform the office of any changes in medical conditions. If a child has a minor accident the class teacher will inform you at the end of the day. If any medical concerns appear during the day, a first aider, or the class teacher, will contact parents.
In the normal course of events we do have outbreaks of headlice. This is dealt with sensitively and letters are sent home to inform parents.
We have dealt with a very wide variety of medical needs and work closely with parents to ensure that they are approached in a sensitive way. Do please come in and discuss any medical issues with your child's teacher.
Please ensure your child has been given their hayfever medicine before school.
When the weather is very warm children are encouraged to wear summer hats/caps and we ask that parents/carers apply all day sun cream in the morning before the children come to school.
