Medicines in School

From time to time your child may be well enough to attend school but requires medicine throughout the day. Please click HERE to access the school's Short Term Medicine Policy and Medical Conditions Policy giving details of when this is possible and what information we need from you.  

First Aid in School

We have a number of staff qualified to undertake first aid. Where your child has been treated by a first aider, an email will be issued explaining the details of the incident and the treatment provided to ensure you are informed should further treatment become necessary.

Where a child requires emergency treatment this will be sought by the staff 'in loco parentis' and the parents will be contacted by phone.
