What do I do if my child is unwell?

Please do not give your child medicines to bring to school. This is for their safety and the safety of other children.

We are unable give children medicine at school. Children on antibiotics for a short term should be at home. However, if your child is on antibiotics for a longer term and needs to have a lunchtime dose you may come to school to give this to her/him. Please let the office know if you are going to do this and always come to the office to administer the medicine.
 If your child is on long-term medication (e.g. for asthma) please let us know and we will discuss with you how the medication will be managed. You will need to fill in a medical form giving us relevant details.

If your child is unwell before the start of the school day please keep her/him at home and telephone to tell us.
If your child is unwell while at school she/he will be taken to the Medical Room and cared for until feeling better. If he/she is not well enough to return to the class you will be contacted to come and collect him/her.

If a child has vomited or had diarrhoea they should be kept away from school for 48 hours after the last time they vomited or had diarrhoea.
