If your child becomes ill during the school day, parents will be contacted and asked to take their child home, as the school has no medical facility. For this reason it is vital we have an up to date emergency telephone number where parents can be contacted during the day and very useful to have details of a second contact in case the first is not available.
If your child is ill you must notify the school, it is essential that we are aware if a child has an infectious illness. Please do not send your child to school until they have fully recovered. Children who have had diarrhoea or sickness must not return to school for 48 hours after it has stopped, as advised by the Health Protection Agency. We do not give medication unless it is for long-term treatment but we are allowed to supervise inhalers and request that asthmatic children keep these in school permanently.
Please do not send your child to school with medicines including aspirin and throat sweets, these can be dangerous and small children do not appreciate the danger.
