The school includes a fully equipped First Aid Room, featuring all the necessary equipment and medications for students. We are staffed with 2 full-time nurses who are qualified to administer any first aid treatment necessary, as well as provide advice on health education and other health related questions students might have. All first aid cases will receive immediate attention and an ambulance will be called in case of an emergency.
It is important that medical information regarding all students is shared with the School Clinic and those medical records are given to the Nurses.
The School Nurses are on call throughout the school day.
- No student is to take a course of treatment or prescription medicine at school without the knowledge of the School Nurses
- Accidents or emergencies must be reported to the Nurses at once whenever they occur
- After a visit to the Nurses, pupils will be given a medical note which they must show to their Class Teacher/Form Tutor
- Parents will be informed about any medical issues occurring at the school.
Should a student become ill during the day, the Nurse will arrange for appropriate medical aid and inform both teachers and parents. Students should not return to class without a medical note from the Nurse. Students should not leave the school site because of illness without first consulting with the Nurses. The Class Teacher/Form Tutor will be informed of any pupils excused from school by the Nurses. The Nurses, together with the School Receptionists will contact the student’s parents and make arrangements for the child to return home.
