Illness or Accidents
Illness or Accidents in School
If a child is unwell at school, every effort will be made to contact parents.
If your child develops symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting you should keep them off school until they have been symptom free for at least 48 hours.
It is very important that we have up-to-date home/work telephone numbers or other contact numbers.
Until a parent has been contacted we will take any action required in the interests of the child.
Several of the school staff are trained First Aiders and in the event of an accident, appropriate first aid will be given.
In the case of more serious accidents, parents will be contacted as soon as possible. We will also inform parents if a child suffers a knock on the head, even if there are no apparent symptoms.
A ‘Teddy Bear form’ is sent home to inform parents of any minor incidents.
