Health & Safety

Jewellery, except for stud earrings and watches, must never be worn in school as it can be the cause of injury and could be lost or stolen.  Teachers will ask children wearing jewellery to remove it and it will be placed in a named envelope and returned to the child at the end of the day.

We ask that girls with long hair wear this in a style so that it is tied back. For health and safety reasons, we require girls to remove their headscarves for P.E. lessons. No jewellery to be worn for P.E..

Children are encouraged to wear a hat or cap during the summer months as protection from the harmful rays of the sun.

Please ensure that zips and buttons are not too difficult for your child to manage.

 

Medical Information

Accidents and Minor Ailments

Every care is afforded to your children. If your child is ill at school you will be asked to take him/her home. If a minor accident occurs the matter is dealt with by a qualified first-aider. Serious accidents are noted in our accident log. In very serious cases we endeavour to contact parents so that, if required, they may accompany their child to the doctor or hospital.

 

Emergency Contact

If your child is unwell during the school day we will need to contact you or a named person so that they can be taken home.

PLEASE INFORM THE SCHOOL IF YOUR DAYTIME CONTACT NUMBERS CHANGE.

 

Health Care Interviews

All children are given hearing and vision tests after their fifth birthday. Your child will

be offered a health interview with the school nurse if:

1. You, the Parent have any concerns about your child’s health.

2. The Class Teacher has any concerns about health issues relating to your child.

3. The School Nurse has any concerns which have been identified through the questionnaire completed by parents.

 

Medical Welfare

NO MEDICINE OR PILLS SHOULD BE SENT TO SCHOOL WITH THE CHILDREN

Any queries regarding regular medication please see the Office staff. In cases of sickness or diarrhoea, you are asked to allow at least twenty-four hours to elapse before sending the child to school in order to avoid an epidemic. If you suspect your child is unwell, please do not send him/her to school until they are well enough to cope with a normal school day, which includes outdoor play.
