If your child has a chronic medical condition, such as asthma or severe allergies, we will work with you to create a Care Plan which includes details of the medication, dosage and any other advice. Medications should be collected at the end of each term and checked to ensure they are still in date. Medications held at school are taken to swimming, off-site PE and school trips.My child is taking antibiotics and needs a lunchtime dose. What shall I do?
Staff are not allowed to administer this type of medication so you will need to ensure that someone comes to school to administer it, or re-arrange the dosage times around the school day. With written permission, children in Year 6 can self-administer.
My child was sick in the night. Should I send him/her into school the next morning?
If your child has vomited, or has had diarrhoea, please leave at least 24 hours from the time of the last symptoms before sending them back to school.
My child has a medical/dental appointment during the school day. What shall I do?
Please try to avoid doctor/dental appointments during the school day. If it is unavoidable, please send a note in, no later than the day before, indicating what time you’ll be collecting your child, the nature of the appointment, if and when they will return to school and whether or not they require school dinner.
