Please ensure your contact details are always up-to-date. In the case of your child becoming ill at school or having an accident, we need to make contact. Please notify us if a particular number is preferable or is not to be used. It is also advisable to keep the school informed about any health matters, especially allergies, relating to your child.

Returning to school after illness
Children returning to school after illness should clearly be fit to do so and free from infection. Please err on the side of caution when making a decision about your child returning to school. Please note that though we support and praise pupils for their attendance, we do not encourage or condone children coming to school sick. It is unfair & inconsiderate and others do not appreciate being given a bug! I’m sure parents understand we have to operate a zero tolerance on this matter and will contact parents to take their child home if he is sick at school. This is in the best interests of everyone’s health.

First Aid
Simple first aid is given at school when necessary for small cuts, scratches or bruises. This includes cleaning the wound with a steri-wipe, applying a plaster and sending a label home in his journal to say this was carried out. An ice-pack is used in the case of small bruises. If an accident needs hospital or medical attention, we will make every effort to contact you first.

If your child needs medication during the day, you need to complete a form at the office. If your child is self-administering medication, authorisation and any necessary details are needed in writing, addressed to the Principal.

Head Lice
Head Lice can be a problem at school; on rare occasions, thank goodness. Cases of head lice should be reported to the class teacher. Advice on treatment is available from the school office if needed. We endeavour to keep parents/ guardians informed if there is an outbreak at school.
