 MEDICINES AND FIRST AID

First aid is given in school for any minor injuries and a record is kept. If a head bang is involved an information note is available to guide parents. If we are unable to contact a parent where more serious accidents occur the school will act in loco parents and send the pupil to hospital or to a doctor. If pupils have special medical needs or allergies parents must keep the school informed of these. If children are asthmatic, the children should have access to their inhalers at all times during school. The school can no longer keep inhalers. Several members of staff have completed Pediatric First Aid training.
