Illness and Administration of Medicines

Parents are asked not to send children to school who are unwell, but to telephone in to inform the school of the reason for absence.  Messages can be left before the school day or e-mailed to the office. Children should not return to school for 48 hours after a vomiting bug or diarrhoea.

Should your child become ill or have an accident during the school day we will make every effort to contact you at home or at work using the emergency contact numbers. In the event of a serious accident or illness we will seek immediate medical advice.

Please note that school staff cannot administer any medicine unless it is prescribed by your child’s GP. If you wish us to administer any prescribed medicine, please complete the form below - it is also available from the school office.

Please inform the school if your child has any allergies, including asthma and provide a named inhaler as necessary.

If you have any medical concerns or need advice, please contact the school or your local surgery as soon as possible.
