If your child is ill then clearly the best place for them is at home. Some chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, for example, simply need medication and monitoring. We can arrange for this in school if necessary. Please discuss these arrangements with the Inclusion Leader Mr Gubbins and the school nurse.
If your child is too poorly to attend school please telephone the school absense line which is available 24 hours a day with your child's details and the reason for absense.
Time off from school to attend is of course allowed but we ask that non urgent appointments such as dentist, routine vaccinations be made outside of school hours where possible. If your child has a hospital or specialist appointment please bring the letter to the school office where a copy can be placed on their file as proof of authorised absence. All collections during the school day are via the school office.
Medication or tablets which are not prescribed (Calpol etc) are not allowed to be administered at school under Government Guidelines.
Parents of children who need any medication e.g. asthma inhalers, must complete a medical form, available at the school office.
If your child has been ill and returns to school but has to complete a course of medicine, the school will administer it provided they need to take it more than three times a day; for three times a day it would be expected that you administer once before school, once at end of school day adn once before bedtime. Again a permission form from the office must be completed.
Medicine must be labelled very clearly with the child’s name and have accompanying instructions concerning the required dosage. A spoon or measuring implement should be provided.
We welcome parents into school to give their child medicine when necessary.Some of our children suffer from severe allergies or medical conditions. Please contact us as soon as you become aware of any such condition with your child in order that we can support you in ensuring your child’s health and safety at school.
