Medical Matters If your child has an accident in school and is seen by a first aider, your child will be given an accident slip to bring home so you know what has happened and what treatment, if any, has been given. If a child receives a head injury parents will be informed of the incident as soon as possible, usually via telephone call. If children become ill during the day parents/carers will be contacted to come and collect their child. Advice will be given regarding any exclusion times. Please note that we have a strict 48 hour exclusion period from the last episode of sickness and/or diarrhoea. Prescribed medication only will be administered at the discretion of school staff. A medication form (available from the School Office) must be completed first. If medication is time critical we suggest parents/carers make arrangements to come into school to administer or consider whether the child is well enough to be in school. If your child has an on-going medical condition such as Asthma, allergies or has a specific dietary need please contact the School Office who will provide relevant forms for completion and ensure a care plan is put in place.
