Accidents & Emergencies

Minor injuries or illness during the day are normally attended to at school. In more serious situations, every endeavour is made to contact the parents to arrange for the child to be collected from school. In extreme emergencies the child may be taken to a doctor or hospital. Therefore it is vitally important that parents ensure that emergency contact numbers are kept up to date.

It is a parents’ responsibility to provide the school with adequate information regarding details of their child’s medical condition, which may require specific action and/or treatment under emergency conditions.

 PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP SCHOOL RECORDS UP TO DATE
WITH EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBERS

First Aid

Only very basic first aid can be offered by staff. The general procedure is to assist a child to become more comfortable and to return to lessons. Where the injury or illness is deemed to be beyond minor First Aid, parents emergency contacts will be contacted at home or at work. In extreme cases, an ambulance may be called, at the school’s discretion.

Whenever there is any doubt at all, the problem is referred to the parents, who may make their own decisions on the medical treatment required by their child.
