Illness in School
When necessary, if a pupil is ill or has had a serious accident we will contact parents to collect their child early; parents are contacted by telephone. Sick pupils are cared for by the School Welfare Officer until their parents arrive. If your child has been sick at home please do not return them to school for at least 24 hours.
A contact telephone number is essential for us to be able to report illness or emergencies.
Telephone Numbers and email addresses
In case of emergency, at least two telephone contact numbers must be provided for every pupil, (hospitals are unwilling to administer treatment if a parent is not present). If home or work telephone numbers change, please inform us immediately, as we need to be able to contact parents quickly. Information sheets, including telephone numbers and email addresses, are to be filled in as soon as your child starts at our school and it is your responsibility to keep us up to date with your circumstances.
Parents may request prescribed medicines to be administered to their child at school by completing the appropriate documentation. This can be obtained from the school office. Permission is given at the discretion of the Headteacher.
Hospital and Clinic Appointments
Where appointments cannot be made outside of school time, parents are asked to give at least 24 hours notice of a medical appointment, where possible.
Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures provides comprehensive details on our approach to keeping children safe. Please also see the Safeguarding Policy Addendum.
Entry for parents and visitors is via the office only. On arrival at the office, please press the intercom button and announce yourself.
The site entrances are occasionally open to allow access for pupils and staff only but these are locked during session times.
Restricted parking areas on site for staff and day visitors’ cars means that we cannot allow parents to park on the school grounds. Those wishing special dispensation due to disability must apply for permission in writing to the Chair of Governors.
All visitors to the site must wear a visitor badge and be subject to a DBS check if working on a regular basis with children.
