Medical & First Aid

School Medical Service

The school doctor, nurse and dentist make regular visits to school.  If your child has not had a pre-school medical he/she will see the school nurse in their second term.  Regular checks are made on children's sight, hearing and teeth.  You will be informed beforehand and invited to attend if necessary.

Medication

If your child requires medication prescribed by his/her doctor we can administer this at the required times throughout the school day, simply bring the medicine to the school office in the original box with the dispensing label intact and complete a Medical Administration form.  Please note, we can only administer over the counter medication by completing the same form, indicating why your child needs to have this.  The Medical Administration form can be obtained from the main office.

Inhalers

If your child has an inhaler in school, please ensure it is in its box, so we can identify who it belongs to with the dispensing label intact. 

If your child uses an AeroChamber or Spacer, ensure you collect this at the end of every half-term, to be cleaned and checked and bring back at the start of the new term.
