Health and Safety

Health and safety, as well as the general well-being of our whole school community, is a high priority, and we ensure that careful attention is given to all H&S regulations enforced by law. Our health and safety policy is available from the school office and below.

On a day to day basis both the academic progress and the physical well-being of our children requires the close co-operation of both parents and staff, and parents are asked to inform the school of any serious illness or contagious diseases such as chicken pox, stomach bugs, head lice, conjunctivitis or impetigo as soon as these are known.

In case of any injury that happens on the school site, staff are only allowed to carry out the most basic first aid. Creams and medicines must not be applied. The school will refer any child thought to have a serious injury to the local accident and emergency unit, and their parents will be informed as soon as possible.

The school cannot undertake to give children tablets or medicine unless prescribed by a doctor.  Medication should be handed into the school office by the parent or carer.  The parent or carer will be requested to fill out pertinent documentation as detailed in the school Medication Policy.  Children should not be sent to school in possession of medicine or any kind of drug with the exception of asthma medication.  The parents or carers should supply the school office with all the necessary equipment which will be kept in the classroom and used when the children requires it. Older pupils are able to look after their own inhalers.

Further detailed information can be found in the school Medication Policy.  The school Medication Policy can be found under the information section on this website, or a copy can be requested from the school office.
