School Nurse

If your child falls ill at school 

Students who are ill during the school day are treated, in the first instant, by the nurse the nurse decides if a parent or carer needs to be contacted. It is not acceptable for students to telephone their parents or carers directly or for parents and carers to remove their son/daughter without the permission of the school nurse. If parent or carer hears from their child that they feel ill, it is imperative they contact the school and inform the nurse. The child will be assessed and a telephone conversation with home will take place before the child is collected.

Asthma Inhalers, Epipens and all other medication 

All parents and carers must return the ‘Parental Agreement to Administer Medicine’ form which is in the admission pack, giving permission for the school to administer the Epipen, inhalers and all other medication.  It is the responsibility of parents and carers to make sure that medication provided is not past its use-by-date.

If your child requires to use either an asthma inhaler or an Epipen parents and carers should provide a spare, clearly marked with the student’s name, for the nurse to keep in the event of an emergency.
