St Mary's Church of England Primary School


Only prescribed medicines can be administered by school staff and only if clear, written instructions have been received on the official consent form issued by the school.


If the doctor feels that your child is fit enough to return to school but requires medicine in the middle of the day, we may ask that parents attend the school to administer it.


If your child has any health related problems such as asthma, you are asked to inform the school office. A health care plan will be put in place for all long-term health conditions.


If any pupils become unwell during the day we will contact you, or one of the people you have named as a contact, and ask you to take your child home as soon as possible. Please make sure we have up to date phone numbers. If you use a mobile phone for your contact number, please ensure it is switched on whenever possible.


In an emergency situation, an ambulance will be called to take any child to hospital and parents will be informed immediately.
