General Medical Information
In line with other Schools in the Sheffield area we do not administer medicines in School. Inhalers may be stored in the medical room. Please make sure that inhalers brought to school are always clearly labelled. Members of staff are not allowed to administer medication but may supervise children able to do this for themselves. All medication must be taken to the school office where a form requesting the administering of medicine is required to be completed by the parent/carer who has parental responsibility. Any other adult, including family members, who do not have parental responsibility can not sign this form.
Our medicine form is available for completion on sQuid, entitled 'Medicine Administration'.
Injuries at School
The School has several trained first aiders on the staff. Children who are injured will be assessed and the appropriate steps taken. A bump note will be sent home indicating the location of the injury via our medial tracker.
Illness at School
If a child is ill at school, then Office Staff will contact parents/carers and arrange for the child to be collected. Please ensure you inform school of changes to contact numbers.
Storage of Medicines
Inhalers are kept in a green first aid box at school in the relevant classrooms. All other medication must be given into the office with the relevant permission for medicines to be administered at school form. Medicines must not be given to children to bring in or put in their lunch boxes for self administration. Our First Aid Policy can be found in the Reception area in the Parent Policy file
School Health Service
Every child deserves to be as fit and healthy as possible. The School Nursing Team regularly visits all schools. The Team comprises a qualified nurse, who is available to help you with any health concerns about your child and has close links with community paediatricians, GPs, health visitors and other professionals who care for children. The team also includes health care assistants who carry out routine screening of children at school entry and in Y6.
With parental agreement the School Nurse can provide a link between home and school and act on the child’s behalf. The nurse will also provide information, advice and support on health issues to teachers, parents and children. This can be offered individually or in groups as part of health promotion programmes.
Routine screening of your child’s height, weight, vision and hearing is offered to all children within the first year of school. Where any problems are identified, appropriate follow-up and referral can be made. These tests can be carried out at any age on request if concerns are highlighted.
If you have any questions regarding vaccinations that you feel your child may be due please contact your School Nurse or GP surgery.
You can contact your School Nurse at any time during your child’s school life. Contact details are available from the School office or contact the central school nurse office on 0114 2331189.
