Medicines in School

 

 

 

 

 The school is happy to give children prescribed medication on receipt of a signed medical form. The forms are available at the school office or can be printed out below at home. Unfortunately we are not able to administer non prescribed medication however parents/carers are welcome to come to school during the day to give to their child directly.

Headlice

 Research shows that more than half of parents believe their child caught headlice from other children at school however more than a third of parents kept the fact their child had head lice a secret from other parents and the school. *

We are asking parents to take part in the 'Once a Week, Take A Peek' campaign to raise awareness of weekly checks. Early detection and treatment can quickly and effectively deal with the issue. As long as a child has been treated, they are welcome to continue coming to school.

We urge parents/carers then to inform the school of any outbreaks in order that we can reduce the risk to other children via a letter home.

Please note that headlice are nothing to be ashamed about and the school would never divulge a child's name.

*OnePoll survey, 2,000 parents of children who have had headlice, April 2013.
