Health and Safety
Staff are not allowed to administer medicines of any description. Occasionally after a short illness, a doctor may advise that a child may attend school whilst still needing medication. Should this happen, parents must take responsibility for the medication and come into school to administer it if they wish.
If your child has an on-going problem, such as a serious allergy, which may affect them while they are at school, please speak to Mrs Darch or Mr Mountstephen.
Asthma inhalers may be kept by the child or teacher for use if needed. Please label clearly with your child’s name.
Please do not allow children to bring cough sweets into school.
The school has a school nurse employed by Sirona Care and Health. Support and advice is offered to school-age children and their families for a variety of health related concerns. Anyone can ask to see the school nurse – children, young people, or their parents/carers.
For more information, contact details or to download a copy of the service leaflet go to http://www.sirona-cic.org.uk/health-care-services/child-health/school-nursing.
Also your child’s teacher or the school office can tell you the name of your school nurse and how to contact her.
No matter how delightful, all dogs must be tied up on the green. For obvious reasons, no dogs are allowed on to the school site.
Under new safeguarding guidelines, it is essential that all ‘visitors’ sign in at our reception desk when coming into school, pick up a badge and wear that badge. It is also vital that everyone remembers to sign out when they leave. If you are entering school after registers close, so after 9am and/or before the end of the school day, after 3pm, you are technically a visitor and signing in is really important to us – even if you will be in school for only one minute. Thank you for your help with this.
