First Aid

Our Welfare Room is supervised by a qualified First Aid trained Pupil Welfare Officer to help with any injuries that may occur on site during the school day.  The Pupil Welfare Officer is on site from 8.30am until 2.50pm. Parents of pupils requiring daily or regular medication (including inhalers) should complete the correct paperwork and leave medicines in the Welfare Room.  Medication will be issued by the First Aider.

Pupils should not have medicines on their person during the school day.  No medicines (such as paracetamol) are available for general pupil issue.  Pupils need to obtain a purple pass from their teacher in order to be released from a lesson to attend the Welfare Room. Pupils should not go to the Welfare Room without a purple pass.

Pupils requiring the Welfare Room before 8.35am (registration), during break or during lunch, should obtain a purple pass from their Year Tutor.  No medical facilities are available in the Welfare Room. It is a separate, private area for pupils should they suffer an injury or become unwell.

The service is provided to respond to any injuries that may occur during the school day. It does not support any injuries that take place outside of school or at home and parents are expected to take their children to a GP or hospital in such instances.  Parents will be contacted to collect their child from the Welfare Room as soon as possible as only general care and First Aid can be provided.  If an injury is severe an ambulance will be called.

Parents are reminded that pupils should not be sent to school with injuries or illness.  Any sickness or diarrhoea requires a 48 hour period before pupils should return to school.
