Medical Care Plan – If your child has a medical condition then a ‘School Medical Care Plan’ will be issued.
This is kept on record for your child and will provide all relevant information around their condition. Should your child develop a medical condition then please inform the school office so a Care Plan can be compiled.
Medicine – If your child requires medication while at school (NB: we can only administer prescribed medication from the GP that is required to be given 4 times a day – We are unable to give Calpol/Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Piriton etc., unless a School Care Plan is in place. Please complete the form below and send in to school along with the medication (clearly labelled in a plastic bag with a medicine spoon). Please hand to a member of staff on door duty in the morning. We cannot administer any medication unless the form is received.
Asthma / Inhalers – The same applies to inhalers – please complete the form below and send into school with your child’s inhaler, clearly labelled with their name (please supply in a labelled small plastic box for easy storage) – If your child is a regular user of their inhaler we would suggest you ask your GP for a spare that can be left at the school.
Illness and InfectionsIf your child has been absent from school please make sure that they are well before returning, especially if the illness is infectious. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours after sickness or diarrhoea before returning your child to school. If your child is unwell whilst they are at school we will contact you and ask you to collect them. Please make sure that the school office always has your up to date contact number.
