When your child starts school you will be asked to complete a form outlining any medical history that we should be aware of. It is important that this record is kept up to date.
Measles is highly infectious and if left unvaccinated nine out of ten children in an early years' setting can catch the disease if just one child is infectious. Please see the attached fliers for more information.
Illness During the School Day
Please do not send your child to school if he/she seems unwell. In the event of illness at school we shall contact you immediately. We will do all we can to comfort your child but we do not have the staffing or facilities to care for children who are unwell.
Injuries at School
If your child sustains a minor injury whilst at school we will administer first aid. If your child has a head injury we will always provide you with a letter. However, should we have any concerns we will contact you immediately. All injuries are recorded.
Mental Health Support
Did you know Reflexions works within our school? They are a mental health support team who can help if a child is experiencing difficult emotions or is struggling with their wellbeing! Please contact the school mental health lead, Miss T Challenor, if you feel your child may need support.
All medication will be administered to pupils in accordance with the DfE document: Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions. The only medications kept and administered within school are those prescribed, and on occasions unprescribed, specifically for a pupil that would require administering 4 x a day or to treat long term health needs only at the request of the parent/carer.
If your child suffers from allergies please let us know.
Our school nurse comes into school regularly and is available to meet individually with children or parents. To access health services for children between 0-19 provided by qualified health visitors, school nurses and midwives please visit NHS 0-19 Service.
