Child Medication

If your child requires regular medication (eg for asthma) please fill out a permission form at the office so that it can be administered by a member of staff.

Children who require a short-term course of antibiotics etc, must be kept at home until the course is completed. If your child requires a long-term course of medication please contact the Headteacher so arrangements may be made. If your child has vomited or suffered from diarrhoea please keep them at home for at least 48 hours to avoid spreading infection. If your child is likely to be absent please make sure that you telephone to let us know.

Medicals - children have a medical review in their first year at school with the school nurse and/or doctor. A parent must be present.

Headlice can be a problem with young children in school. There are several methods of treatment. If you find your child has headlice, please inform the school as soon as possible and we will send a letter informing all parents that they need to check for headlice in an effort to clear them quickly.
