Allergies

If Your Child has allergies then you must inform the School office so a Care plan can be organised for your child .

Medicine

If your child is prescribed medicine which you need us to administer in school, please complete a Pupil medication request form, which is available to download Medical Request Form

The medicine should be in its original packaging with your child’s name on it. We cannot administer ibuprofen/Nurofen unless prescribed by a doctor.

The Surrey and Sussex Health Protection Unit (Tel: 03458942944) have issued guidance on Infection Control in Schools. It is available to download Here.

Accidents

If a child falls ill or has an accident (not minor accidents such as a grazed knee) every care will be taken to contact parents, but this can only be accomplished if the school is provided with up to date contact numbers.

Illnesses

No child may keep medicines on their person except for asthma inhalers.

Asthma inhalers we ask that you provide two, one for your child to take to their class for use when needed,the other to be stored in the School office in case of loss.

Where children have a chronic illness that requires regular treatment then an Individual

Treatment Plan will be formulated with help from the medical service, contact School office for more information.

Treatment plans are required before the child can return to School.

Children who are vomiting or have diarrhoea must be kept at home, and not returns to School for a minimum of 48 hours after symptoms have stopped.
