If your child needs to take medication, we are more than happy for you to come into school to administer it. However, staff are not permitted to administer medication, so please don’t send medicines or tablets into school with your child, as they cannot administer their own medication either.
Pupils with asthma should bring a clearly labelled inhaler into school, which will be kept in the child’s classroom. Pupils will be supervised taking their inhaler, but staff will not be able to administer it for them. Pupils are encouraged to use their inhalers whenever they feel they need them.
Every effort is made to keep pupils safe, but occasionally accidents do occur and we have a number of staff who are first aid trained and able to treat minor injuries. You will always be contacted via text/phone to inform you that your child has had an accident. In most cases these are minor and the pupil is able to remain in school. Parents are more than welcome to visit school to check injuries if they wish. It is vitally important that we have an up to date contact numbers, so we can reach you in emergencies.
We would respectfully ask that pupils do not bring valuables into school as we cannot accept responsibility for anything that is lost, broken or stolen.
Mobile phones are not allowed in school generally, but if you feel you child really NEEDS a phone, it must be handed in to the class teacher (or breakfast club supervisor if they attend) at the beginning of the day and it will be handed back at the end of the day.
Please Note: staff CANNOT be held responsible if the phone gets broken, lost or stolen.
