Under the Borough Guidelines on the “Administration of medication to pupils in schools” the School Office staff are only permitted to give prescribed medication if required four times a day. A blue inhaler only for asthma will be kept in the pupil's classroom in a clearly labelled bag. Please ensure the inhaler has your child’s name clearly marked on it and is within a box prescribed by a doctor. Two emergency inhalers are also held in the school office. It is recommended that a child also uses a "spacer" to ensure the medication works effectively.
If your child requires an Epi-pen for allergies, details must be sent in writing to the Office along with the healthcare plan. Two Epi-pens, clearly marked and in date, will be kept in the pupil's classroom. Two emergency epi-pens are also kept in the school office.
If your child requires ear/eye drops they must either be able to self-administer with written consent from you, or you must come in to school to administer them to your child.
The Head Teacher, Governing Body, Staff and the Education Authority can accept no responsibility with regard to accident or injury sustained by a pupil as a result of a member of staff carrying out the written instructions of a parent or guardian in regard to the administration of the prescribed medication.
Emergency contact numbers are kept in the school office in case of accident or illness. To ensure that these are kept up to date please inform us immediately of any changes.
If a child has a minor "head bump" during the school day and which is not deemed to be of concern following the necessary checks, a letter will be sent home via your child's book bag to alert you to the injury in case of a delayed reaction when a child has gone home. Examples of head bumps are: bumping heads with another child; hitting head on an object, floor, wall; being hit on the head by a ball. Icepacks are routinely applied to head bumps. Children in the Discovery will be given a wristband to wear to alert staff not involved in the child treatment that they have sustained a head injury.
