Accidents and Illnesses in School

If your child is ill or has an accident during the school day they will be checked by a member of staff who is trained in First Aid. We have staff in all areas of the school that are paediatric trained.  If we feel it necessary we will contact you using the details you give us on your child’s contact form.  It is therefore extremely important that these numbers are kept up to date and you inform the school office of any changes.

In the case of small scrapes or bruises we normally inform parents through the use of a slip that will be passed to you at the end of the school day.  In the case of a bump to the head it is the academy’s policy to try to contact you by telephone even if your child seems fine. If we are unable to contact you, your child will be closely monitored and a slip will be passed to you at the end of the day.

If we have a concern or we feel your child would benefit from being at home we will contact you as soon as possible.
