First Aid & Prescribed Medicines

First Aid

We have around 15 first aiders who are trained to deal with minor injuries and illness.  Parents/carers will always be informed of any incident.

If it is felt a pupil should go home or needs further medical attention parents/carers will be informed as a matter of urgency.

Please also see the school’s First Aid at Work Policy

Prescribed Medicines

Medicines can be given in school by our trained office staff  but these must have been dispensed by a chemist and retain the original label.  An authorisation form must be completed in full before this can be done.
