If your child needs medication at school, you will need to complete and sign a medical administration form, available from the office or download it from this page . When sending in any medication to school either non-prescribed or prescribed it must be provided in it's full packaging, clearly marked with your child's name. Any medication should be handed to the school office or your child's class teacher as soon as your child arrives at school. Children are not allowed medication in their bags (this includes throat lozenges). If your child has an ongoing medical condition, (including asthma) we will need you to complete a full health care plan for your child, in order for us to manage your child's health whilst in school. Please contact Mrs Adele Johnson via the school office to discuss this.
Reporting pupil absences
If your child is ill, please contact the school office each day of absence before 9am.
We have introduced a new, more efficient and secure system for reporting your child’s absence due to illness, called Studybugs. If you haven’t already, please get the free Studybugs app, or register on the Studybugs website, and use it to tell us whenever your child’s ill and unable to attend school. Get the app or register now (https://studybugs.com/about/parents)
There is a dedicated answer phone to leave a message on, or you can contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents will receive a text to advise that their child has bumped their head and an accident form will be sent home. Please observe the child for 72 hours post injury and seek medical advice if they develop any of the following: sickness;, a headache that does not go away with painkillers; out of character irritability; fluids from ears or nose; or changes to eye pupil size.
We use wrist bands in school to help staff identify the children who have had a head bump and need to be observed post injury.
Vomiting and diarrhoea
Children with diarrhoea and/or vomiting should be kept off school until 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.
Scarlet fever is highly contagious. If your child is diagnosed with Scarlet fever, guidance states they should not return to school until 24 hours after initial treatment has been given. For more information click on the document below.
