Safeguarding Information for parents - click to find out what this is all about

First Aid Notification 

If your child receives a bump to the head or a groin injury then you will receive a phone call and a follow up text will be sent. If we are unable to contact you, we will leave a voice message and send the text.  If your child has a minor injury a text will be sent to the main contact.

Pupil Welfare

Parents are asked to keep us informed of any changes to their child's health that might affect their well-being at school.  It is important that we are aware of conditions such as asthma, epilepsy, allergies, hearing or sight impairments, diabetes or eczema.

Illness and medicines

Should your child be taken ill or have an accident at school, we will make every effort to contact you immediately. There is an annual form for you to complete to keep us up to date with any changes to your address, phone number and emergency contact numbers. Please tell the Welfare Officer if your child has been prescribed medication. Medicines should not be left with your child in the classroom. The school can only administer medicines in certain circumstances by prior agreement with the school. All medicine should be provided in the original container and any prescribed medication should have the dispensing chemist’s sticker on it outlining dosage.  Medicine will be returned at the end of the designated period and parents are responsible for safe disposal.

No medication will be administered  to a pupil unless there is specific prior written permission from the parents (our ‘Green Form’) and the medication is provided in the original container.

Attendance and progress are closely linked. If your child has a mild illness such as a cough, cold or headache, please send them in to school. We will monitor them and contact you if we feel they need to go home.

If your child needs additional care (for example a fracture, break or operation recovery) a risk assessment will need to be drawn up.  You need to contact Mrs Bertorelli to discuss the need of the child.  A copy of the risk assessment will be given to you.

Please feel free to ring Mrs Bertorelli, our Welfare Officer, for any support and advice.

If your child is unwell and is staying at home, please contact the school on that day.

You may be asked for medical evidence for lengthy absences or regular illnesses.

Sickness/ Diarrhoea

If your child develops sickness/diarrhoea, they should avoid direct contact with others until 48 hours after the symptoms have gone.  They should not be sent back to school until this symptom free time has elapsed, as they may still be able to pass the virus to others.  Following these precautions will help to limit the spread of the virus around the school.  

Head Lice and Threadworms

Unfortunately, all schools experience head lice and threadworm outbreaks from time to time.  We ask all parents to remain vigilant, performing checks at home regularly (especially at the beginning and end of terms), encouraging good hand washing habits at home (after using the toilet and before eating), and making arrangements for treatment quickly in order to minimise spread.

To help prevent outbreaks, longer hair should be tied back at school, and children are asked to wash their hands before eating and after using the toilet.  Although we have hand gel available at school, this is not a substitute for good hand washing habits, and will not remove threadworm eggs from little hands!
