Medical Matters

Health

We will co-operate fully with you to ensure that your child is healthy at school, and we want you to help us to do this. In particular, we need to know of any medical problems which might affect your child’s progress at school eg asthma.  We also have information in school with the recommended time of absence for infectious diseases such as chicken pox and slap-cheek.  Please contact us for any further advice.

We will do our best to help with children’s medical needs, but we cannot be responsible for giving medicines to children. However, parents whose children require regular medication should discuss the matter with the Head teacher. We recommend any child on medication for occasional illness stays at home until the course of treatment is finished. Please do not send creams, ointments or any medication to school with your child, apart from sun-screen, clearly labelled.

Unfortunately, and despite all your efforts and ours, children occasionally pick up head-lice and we would ask you to check your child for this.  Careful daily grooming is advised. Please inform school if your child is infected, so we can alert all parents in a particular class to double-check their children. Please ask for advice — leaflets are available.

Illness

Your child should stay at home for 48 hours after sickness or diarrhoea and we advise not sending a child complaining of earache or similar problems. Unfortunately, we do not have facilities for sick children, and a child who feels ill is not very happy at school.

Emergency contact

We must have an emergency contact number for you or a nominated adult in case we need to contact you urgently during the day in case of illness or any emergency.
