Illness at school 

If your child is unwell, please inform the school office on the first day of illness and then all subsequent days. If children have vomiting and/or diarrhoea they need to stay at home for 48 hours following the last episode. This is to limit spread of infection to others. You may find the information below helpful when trying to decide if your child is well enough to come into school. 

First Aid 

Most staff have had first aid training and so are able to take care of children who are hurt or unwell. If we have any concerns about your child we will contact you. First aid boxes are located in the staff room and in the school hall.


Accidents - Accidents can happen and although we have first-aiders who can deal with minor cuts and bruises.  However, sometimes we make the decision to contact you and to allow you to seek specialist help for more serious accidents. It is important therefore, that we have up to date emergency phone numbers in case we need to contact you if your child is unwell or has an accident.

Medical Issues

Routine height and weight checks are carried out when the children are in Reception Class. Also eye and hearing tests are carried out. You will be contacted prior to the checks and given the opportunity to have your child removed from the checks if you so wish. 

As inspections for headlice no longer take place we ask that you regularly check your child's hair. Unfortunately this is a common problem in all schools, particularly as headlice prefer clean hair! Leaflets on treatment can be obtained from the school office. If a case of headlice occurs in a class, all the parents of children in the class will be requested (by means of a letter home) to check and, if necessary, treat their child's hair. We will also let individual parents know if we think their child is infected and advise on treatment. The School Nurse will also give advise and will do a home visit if required.


All medicines and inhalers must be taken to the school office and should be clearly named and labelled with instructions. Indemnity forms must be completed and signed, these can be obtained from the school office or by using the attached form.. We are legally only allowed to administer prescribed medicines.
