Medical Matters


The School always has a qualified First Aider on the premises and on educational visits. As a result of the First Aid, Health and Safety Regulations, we are not able to treat cuts and bruises with traditional methods e.g. witch hazel, antiseptic creams etc. We are, therefore, left with ice and water, should any further treatment be considered necessary we would, of course, use the emergency contact numbers sent to school. If an injury is serious and parents cannot immediately be contacted the school will assume “in loco parentis” and ensure the child gets immediate medical attention.

All children on entry to school have a health interview with the school nurse; parents are asked to attend and may request a health check from the doctor if there are any concerns. Samples of children are selected at random for a health check from the doctor; this does not mean that there is any cause for concern.
