Illness & Emergencies

Illness & Emergencies Information

Should your child become ill or have an accident at school, it would be very important to contact you. Therefore, it is important that we have a current phone number.

When dealing with medical emergencies at school, it is vitally important that we have up to date information about your child’s health. Therefore, you must inform us of any medical conditions your child may have.

Children cannot cope happily with school if they are unwell. It’s also important to remember that some illnesses are highly contagious and it is not fair to send your child to school with an illness which other children could catch. If your child is feeling genuinely sick, it is important to keep them at home. Please read the guidelines below:

How many days to keep your child at home for common childhood ailments:

Vomiting                     48 hours after last vomit 

Diarrhoea                   48 hours after diarrhoea has ended

Measles                      4 days from onset of rash

Mumps Until swelling has gone down (5 days minimum)

German Measles        6 days from onset of rash

Chicken Pox               5 days from onset of rash

Impetigo                    Until skin is healed or 48 hours after starting antibiotics

Scabies                      Can return after starting treatment

Scarlet Fever       Until 24 hours after starting antibiotics

Head Lice                  Return immediately after treatment

Medication

If medication has been prescribed by your child’s doctor to be taken 4 times a day, we will be happy to administer it at school. You must visit our school office and fill in a form which gives us permission to do so. Prescription medicines are stored in a lockable cabinet until required. Non-prescribed medicines are not allowed in school,

If your child has asthma, you must visit our school office and fill in an asthma form. You should then make sure your child has an inhaler in school which is clearly labelled. They will then be able to use this when necessary.
