First Aid procedure
First Aid kits are kept in various strategic locations in school, the main centres being:
- Medical Room
- Science Laboratories
- Design Technology Laboratory
- Primary Block
- PE Block
In the event of an incident requiring basic first aid, staff will report in the first instance to the nurse. Should this not be possible, then first aid will be administered following standard safety practices.
A record of the incident will be placed in the student’s file and a note will be sent home to the parent. The incident will also be recorded in the Accident and Incident Book.
Children who feel unwell whilst in school will be observed for a short time in class. If there is no improvement, he/she will be sent to the school nurse. If the nurse judges that your child needs to be cared for at home, we will contact you.
Every teacher and class has a list of students with medical needs e.g. asthma, allergic reactions and how to treat a medical emergency.
With the exception of asthma inhalers for students in Years 6 and above, no medicines should be kept by the child whilst in school. Younger students with asthma will have their inhalers kept in the nurse’s office and in the teacher’s drawer. Please supply two extra inhalers for your child’s use in school, one to be kept in class and one with the school nurse.
Normally medicines are not administered in school. If your child needs to finish a course of medicine you must give us written consent stating that the Nurse, or other named and qualified member of staff, has authority to dispense the medicine.
