Please make sure that the school has an emergency telephone number in case your child is taken ill.
We can only allow medicine in school if it needs to be administered four times a day . Please contact the School office if your child requires medication during the school day.
Any medication MUST be labelled with the child’s name, class and clear instructions and be delivered to and collected from the school office by a parent. Asthma medication will be kept in the classroom.
NOTE: We can NOT agree to administer medicine where:
the medicine is dangerous
the timing and nature of administration is of vital importance
where technical or medical expertise is required
where serious consequences could result from the medicine not being administered.
Medicine is out of date. It is parents responsibility to check dates and replace if necessary.
Our school nursing team will check all children’s vision, hearing, height and weight during their time at the school. A number for the school nursing team is available if you wish to contact them.
Head lice and nits infect the cleanest of heads and they are easily transmitted. Please:
Inspect the hair of all family members at least once a week.
Encourage your child to brush/comb their hair thoroughly before school and at bedtime.
Should you discover lice or nits, either treat with a lotion, spray or wet combing.
Please do not send your child to school untreated!
If nits are spotted in a child’s hair, we always send a letter home to the whole class, requesting parents to check their child’s head and treat if necessary.
Sickness and diarrhoea:
If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, our policy is that they will need to be kept home for 48 hours after the last instance of illness. This is a usual procedure to discourage spread of infection.
Absence from School:
If your child is not well enough to attend school, please inform the school by phone as soon as possible.
