Remember: if you're concerned about your child’s health, consult a health professional.
Whether you send your child to school will depend on how severe you think the illness is. Use this guidance to help you make that judgement
If your child is ill, it's likely to be due to one of a few minor health conditions.
Vomiting and diarrhoea. Children with diarrhoea and/or vomiting should definitely be kept off school until at least 48 hours after their symptoms have gone. Most cases of diarrhoea and vomiting in children get better without treatment, but if symptoms persist, consult your GP
Cough and cold. A child with a minor cough or cold may attend school. If the cold is accompanied by a raised temperature, shivers or drowsiness, the child should stay off school, visit the GP and return to school 24 hours after they start to feel better. If your child has a more severe and long-lasting cough, consult your GP. They can give guidance on whether your child should stay off school.
Raised temperature. If your child has a raised temperature, they shouldn't attend school. They can return 24 hours after they start to feel better.
Rash. Skin rashes can be the first sign of many infectious illnesses, such as chickenpox and measles. Children with these conditions shouldn't attend school. If your child has a rash, check with your GP or practice nurse before sending them to school.
Headache. A child with a minor headache doesn't usually need to be kept off school. If the headache is more severe or is accompanied by other symptoms, such as raised temperature or drowsiness, then keep the child off school and consult your GP.
Please remember we do have children in school who are more vunerable to illness, so if any doubt please consult your GP or health professional.
First Aid supplies are kept in school and minor injuries will be dealt with by a qualified First Aider. Plasters are used from time to time. Please report any allergies with regard to First Aid items.
In the case of a more serious injury or illness we will call a parent/carer or an emergency contact immediately.If we are unable to do so a staff member will accompany the child until the parent arrives. Please make sure we have your up to date contact details.
Children’s well-being is important to us – safe and happy children will be more successful learners.
¨ Our Anti-bullying Policy helps children to recognise and respect each other’s differences
¨ Working with other agencies helps to keep all our children free from harm or neglect
¨ Encouraging our families to walk to and from school, whenever possible, not only reduces the amount of traffic, but can also provide them with a healthy lifestyle.
¨ Healthy eating gives our children the confidence, skills and understanding to make healthy food choices. Healthy and nutritious food and drink are available throughout the day.
If ever you have a concern either about someone in your family or something you may have witnessed, it is always best to share it. The school has a dedicated team of trained staff who can start the process of making sure that the right support will be available. In the first instance you may wish to speak to your child’s teacher who will advise you of who may be the best person to see or make an appointment to see Mr Daniels, headteacher.
The school’s Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Mrs Christine Beacall.
