First Aid

Our first aid trained staff are here to care for your child who becomes unwell at school or may have injured themselves during the school day.

Increasingly, children are attending first aid with a 3/4 day or even a week’s history of a minor ailment. Whilst we are here to assist, it is inappropriate for children to attend first aid with an ongoing problem and advice should be sought from Primary Care – a GP or a pharmacy.

Our aim is to encourage children to stay at school in education, unless of course they are too unwell or injured. If your child is well enough to attend school but requires pain relief, where possible please ensure this has been issued prior to attending school. For more information see the link – is my child too ill for school –

A reminder that if your child has diarrhoea or vomiting, they must remain off school for 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.
