It is really important for you to tell us if your child has a long term medical condition even if you think it will not affect his or her schooling. All information is kept Strictly Confidential.

Staff are not allowed to administer paracetamol/ibuprofen unless prescribed by the doctor, with the prescription label.


We can only administer medicines if:

  • they have a pharmacy label with the correct name and dosage on them.
  • they are prescribed medicines, such as antibiotics, and they need to be taken 4 times a day.

Children must never be given any creams, tablets or medicine to keep in their bag.

If your child requires medicine during the school day that you require staff to administer you must please complete a form at the office and collect the medicine at the end of the day.

If you prefer you can come to the main office and administer the medicine yourself.

Sickness and Diarrhoea

Please remember that this spreads very quickly through children and adults.

If your child vomits or has diarrhoea they should NOT attend school for at least 48 hours.

Plasters and Bumps

Please let us know if your child is allergic to plasters.

If your child has a bump in school we try to let you know if we think it is necessary or if your child is upset.

We always notify you of minor bumps on the head with a green letter which your child’s teacher will pass on.


(for severe allergies)

Children who are prescribed an Epipen for allergies must carry it at all times in a bum-bag.

 Please make sure it has not passed its “use by date”.

Inhalers in school

A form must be completed at the office if your child has an inhaler in school.

Key Stage 1 children - Keep their inhalers in the classroom.

Key Stage 2 children - Should be responsible for their own inhalers.

If your child has asthma he/she must always have a blue inhaler (or their reliever inhaler) in school.

School Nurse

Mrs V. Chambers is our school nurse. Appointments for the nurse need to be made through the Pastoral team.

She is happy to discuss any health issues you may have regarding your child.
