Medical Matters Health It is essential for the school to know of any relevant medical facts relating to your child, e.g. allergies, asthma, eczema, diabetes or epilepsy. Please keep the school regularly updated with relevant medical information so that appropriate provision can be made for each child. Medicines Where clinically possible, medicines should be prescribed in dose frequencies, which enable them to be taken outside school hours. If this is not possible, medicines will only be administered at school when it would be deterimental to a child’s health or school attendance not to do so and where the parents have submitted their written consent on our medical consent form (available from the school office). The school will only accept prescribed medicines that are in-date, labelled, provided in the original container, as dispensed by the pharmacist, and include instructions for administration, dosage and storage. Ill at school, accidents and first aid Parents will be contacted when pupils are unwell or have seriously hurt themselves. Parents/carers will always be notified via a ‘First Aid Report Slip’ if a head bump has been sustained. Please make sure that any changes to contact details are reported to the school administration team.
