Should my child go to school? Click here to read advice from Derbyshire County Council.
Parents are asked to ensure that their contact details are up to date at all times. If there are changes to any details please inform school as soon as possible. This is vital so that we may contact you if necessary.
We do not encourage children who are unwell to be sent to school but recognise that on occasions they may require medication during school hours.
Administration of prescribed medicines in school is available for pupils who are suffering from chronic illness or allergy, recovering from short term illness and are undergoing or completing a course of prescribed treatment using prescription medicine.
Wherever possible we would encourage timing of medicine administration to avoid school hours. If this is not possible and your child does require medicine during the school day, this will need to be sent in original packaging with the pharmacists instructions clearly printed. Please contact the school office as soon as possible so the necessary consents can be signed.
Children requiring asthma inhalers should have these available at all times. They should be clearly labelled with your child’s name, contents and use by dates checked regularly. They are kept in classrooms for easy access.
Accidents in School
Any accident in school is recorded in the school’s accident book. If your child receives a head injury parents will receive an accident slip informing them of the incident and advice about possible reactions. Any major injuries would be dealt with by one of our trained First Aider and parents informed immediately. We will always contact you if we feel it is necessary after an accident.
Regular checks should be made of your child’s scalp. Should your child’s scalp become infested please treat immediately. We ask that all long hair is tied up neatly during the school day. This helps protect against head lice. We will of course, inform you if we notice that your child’s hair contains eggs or lice.
Good leadership and teaching in the early years means that children make good progress.
