Medical and Health

With your permission, the school nurse carries out a health assessment when your child is in the first year of school. Your child will be weighed and measured and have their sight and hearing tested. She can be contacted should you wish to discuss any matters concerning your child’s health.

From time to time parents request that the school dispenses medicines which need to be administered at regular intervals to children. (PLEASE CONSIDER WHETHER YOUR CHILD IS WELL ENOUGH TO ATTEND SCHOOL IF THEY REQUIRE MEDICATION). Medicines must be given to the headteacher or the school administrator who will require you to fill out the appropriate paper work. Please ensure that the medicines are clearly marked with the child’s name and that the child doesn’t bring the medication themselves. You are welcome to come to school to dispense medicine to your own child during the dinner break. Please let us know if this will be the case.

NOROVIRUS - Vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, headache and fever. If your child develops these symptoms, and to prevent an outbreak that would threaten a closure of the school we ask you to keep your child at home for at least 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting (this is national guidance). Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. If you are concerned, please contact your GP.

C19 - We now treat C19 in the same way as other contagious infections such as norovirus (above) - Please refer to the IOM Governments most up to date advice.
