The health and wellbeing of your child is of paramount importance to the school and we strongly believe that improving health and wellbeing contributes to good educational outcomes.
Supporting sick and injured children
We have procedures in place to ensure that any child who becomes sick or injured receives appropriate care and that children with long-term medical conditions are properly supported to have full access to education.
Any child who becomes sick or injured during the school day will be looked after by one of the many first aid qualified staff at our school. Minor cuts and grazes are treated by first aiders and all accidents, no matter how minor, are recorded in our accident books. Parents/carers are always informed if a child bumps their head.
In the event of a child being sick or requiring further assessment/treatment, parents/carers will be informed by telephone immediately. For this reason it is extremely important that the contact details that the school holds are up-to-date.
Medication cannot be administered by school staff without agreement. If a child requires medication, parents/carers are allowed to come into school by prior arrangement to administer this. Parents/carers of all children requiring medication, including asthma pumps, must meet with a member of the Pastoral Care Team and complete an Individual Health Care Plan.
Pastoral Care Team
The Pastoral Care Team are here to support children, parents and carers with any difficulties they have which may be impacting on children’s learning and access to the curriculum.
We can offer practical support, advice and guidance on:
changes in family life
supporting your child’s learning
and any other issues that are important to you and your family.
You can make an appointment to meet with a member of the team by calling the school or visiting to the School Office.
