Medical information

In the event of any injury or where illness is suspected, a qualified First Aider is called and the appropriate action taken.

Details of allergies or medical conditions should be filled in on the admission form. We ask that the school is kept updated should your child’s medical condition change in any way.

Please be aware that parents are responsible for all medication being kept up to date

Severe allergy sufferers who need to use an epi-pen must make arrangements with the school for storage and use. Asthmatic pupils must bring an inhaler into school which will be kept in their classroom at all times.

Infectious conditions – if your child has an infectious condition, the school should be informed immediately and the pupil should be kept at home until they are no longer contagious.

Immunisation – the school expects parents to comply with UK medical recommendations. For the most up-to-date immunization advice visit: www.immunization.nhs.uk.

Medication

Pupils are not permitted to bring medicines of any description onto school premises, this includes painkillers and over the counter drugs.

Pupils are not permitted to self-medicate on School premises and the School will not take responsibility for any pupil who self-medicates whilst in School.

If a pupil is prescribed medication by their doctor, parents should ask the doctor to prescribe medicines that can be given before and after school where possible. Where this is absolutely unavoidable, parents will need to sign a Medication Consent Form and leave the medicine with a designated member of staff.
