The Nurse's room
What a busy place it is! This is where you will find us. If we are not there please ask one of the office staff to locate us. In the Nurse's room you will find a comfy bed, well stocked cupboards with medicines and first aid treatments, an oxygen cylinder and an AED machine (defibrillator).
Children should not be carrying any medication on their person in the school day. If your child should require any medication then please visit me with your child in the morning before class begins or send a letter with your child if you do not take them to school.
At times when you cannot be reached and your child is unwell we may need to give simple medication such as paracetamol and Ibuprofen. We will however, try and contact you first to discuss the treatment.
If your child cannot attend PE or swimming lessons then a note should be provided. Generally we encourage all children to participate in physical activity wherever possible but also understand that there may be reasons your child cannot participate. If your child does not have a note and you cannot be contacted, your child will participate in PE/swimming. However, if your child is too unwell to fully participate then they should be resting at home.
More often than not a head injury, although distressing for the child, is usually minor and causes only short term symptoms. If your child does bump their head at school then we will contact you. You will find a letter in your child's bag at the end of the day with important information about head injuries. Please check your child’s book bag for any medical notes.
All policies and guidelines can be viewed in our Health and Safety Manual under the Policies section of this website.
