Supporting Medical Needs
We endeavour to ensure that children with medical conditions are properly supported so that they have full access to education, including school trips and physical education. The aim is to ensure that all children will medical conditions, in terms of both their physical and mental health, are properly supported in school so that they can play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.
Please find our Supporting Medical Needs Policy below:
It is important that the school has all relevant medical information about children at the school. This information will be recorded and made available to all staff who work with your child. Parents are asked to ensure that the school is kept informed of any changes in relation to medical conditions and allergies.
If your child requires medication, parents are asked to give written permission for staff to administer this, with clear instructions about timing and dose. All prescribed medicines must be in their original packaging with the prescription detail.
If your child is unwell during the school day we will contact parents. It is important that we have up-to-date information about contact numbers as it can be very distressing for a child to have to remain in school when they are unwell if we cannot contact anyone to collect them.
If your child has an accident in school, first aid will be administered by a member of staff. We have qualified first aiders in school who will supervise in the case of a more serious injury. If we have any concerns about a child following an accident in school, parents will be contacted.
