Accidents and illness
If a student has an accident or feels unwell they must tell a member of staff straight away. If they are too ill to remain in school, their parents/carers will be contacted by the school nurse.
Diarrhoea and sickness are types of infection that are extremely contagious, and within a school setting can spread very quickly. If your child displays symptoms of these, please do not send them to school and keep them at home for 48 hours from the last time the symptoms occurred. This is an academy policy.
Qualified members of staff are permitted to administer prescribed medicine with written authorisation from a parent / carer, please see the Academy administrator for a disclaimer form. All inhalers and EpiPens should be labelled with your child’s name and class name and specific medical plans relating to their use should be completed with the support of the school nurse as necessary.
