Illness and Injury

The school is sympathetic to students during a period of treatment following a significant injury/illness. We are especially appreciative of the considerable efforts of such students (and their parents/carers) to attend school and carry on with ordinary routines as much as possible. However, please be aware that Insurance and Health and Safety considerations necessitate that students returning to school in these circumstances must adhere to the following protocol:

Before the student may return to school after a significant injury/illness a certificate/letter must be obtained from the GP/hospital giving consent to attend school

Any student using crutches, or with significant mobility issues, will require a risk assessment to be completed before they may be readmitted to school. The risk assessment needs to be agreed with their parent/carer

Arrangements are to be made with the school to discuss how and when the student will return to school. An appointment may be made at a convenient time to see a member of staff from Pastoral Teams or the First Aid Co-ordinator through 01943 872315 or emailing the school on [email protected]

Please note that students may not return to school until this meeting has been held.

This Protocol is without prejudice to any student with a long-term disability and who is subject to a personal health plan in the school. Should you have any further queries please contact Reception.

Medical conditions

To inform the school of a medical condition which does not require intervention during the school day, please complete a Medical Information Form. Examples: eczema, hay fever.

An Individual Healthcare Plan should be completed to notify the school about current/existing medical conditions that are being treated by a medical professional, involve prescribed medication or may require an emergency response at school such as asthma; a heart condition; allergies requiring the use of an EpiPen; diabetes etc.

If your child requires medication during the school day, please complete a Parental agreement for school to administer medicine. If your child has been prescribed an inhaler for asthma, we do have a school inhaler for emergency use. Please also complete a Use of Emergency Salbutamol form.

All documents can be completed electronically in Word and returned to [email protected]. Alternatively paper copies may be returned c/o Reception.
