Illness during the school day
If your child becomes ill or injured during the school day and is not well enough to stay in class, you will be called to pick your child up. Please ensure that the school ofﬁce has up-to-date emergency contact numbers in case no one can be contacted at home.
If a child needs to take medicine at school, parents must have completed the necessary consent forms for administration of medicine in school - these can be found and submitted in the school office. In some cases, parents/carers may be asked to meet with the trained medical staff on duty to discuss arrangements for the administration of medication. Medicine needs to be in its original packaging.
Students with asthma should bring an inhaler, prescribed by their doctor, to school each day. It is also advisable to meet with Ms. Pancho in order to complete an Asthma Registration card as well as hand over a spare inhaler to be kept in the school ofﬁce at all times. Asthmatic students should notify a member of staff if at any time breathing becomes difﬁcult.
