First Aid and Medicine

All staff in school have first aid training. Any minor incidents within school are referred to the designated First Aiders who will assess the situation and record the incident in the Accident Book. Under these circumstances parents will be notified at the end of the day.  Any incident, which is deemed serious parents will be informed immediately.

If your child needs to take medication during the school day, you must contact the school so that the appropriate parental consent forms are completed. Only medicines prescribed by a doctor can be administered (and only if 4 doses are needed in one day), not over-the-counter medicines. Medicines must be in their original container, clearly labelled with dosage instructions written by the doctor or pharmacist.
