Medical Information

We want to help children and families stay healthy.

If your child is suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting please do not send them to school until 48 hours after the last episode, even if they feel absolutely fine. This is Health Protection Agency advice which we follow to avoid spreading infections. As always, please talk to your child about the importance of washing their hands.  

We have a number of qualified First Aiders, and there is one on duty at all times.  Sick or injured children are sent or taken to the School Office to be dealt with by the First Aider.  Parents and emergency services are called as necessary. We keep a register of emergency contact numbers for all children.

In general, medicines should be administered at home. For example, a three-times-daily dose can be given before and after school and then at bedtime. If more frequent doses are needed, the medicine should be brought to the School Office and signed in with clear instructions using our Medication Form
