Medical Advice

Absence

Please contact the school before 9.30am to advise if your child is going to be absent from school due to sickness. Please click HERE for further info on the school’s Attendance Policy.


Sickness Guidelines for Exclusion from School

Please note that for all sickness and diarohea related illnesses, the school would not expect the child to return to school until 48 hours have elapsed since the last episode. An early return will result in parents being contacted to take their child home.

Management of Headlice

Head lice are extremely common in close-knit environments such as schools. Please click HERE to access information on the management of head lice. Please ensure your child still attends school during treatment.

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 Medicine 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, he or she will bring home a note giving details of the incident and the treatment 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.
