The health and welfare of your child is extremely important to all of us at Kingshott. During the school day Mrs Burnett, our school first aider is on site to deal with injuries and illness. Should your child be unwell during the day, Mrs Burnettn will determine whether they are well enough to remain at school or need to go home. Likewise, should Mrs Burnett feel that an injury requires a medical opinion (e.g. X-Ray), contact will be made with parents to arrange collection. If it was considered necessary, an ambulance would be called to deal with cases where more immediate attention was required. In these instances, we would arrange to meet you at the hospital. It is therefore vital that changes to contact details are supplied to the school, whether temporary or permanent.
In order to ensure that children are dealt with appropriately, it is essential that parents keep Mrs Burnett informed of any medical conditions or dietary requirements. Medication can be dispensed if necessary, but this should be discussed with Mrs Burnett at the beginning of the school day.
Many of our staff, including all the PE and Games staff, are qualified in first aid, and school trips (sports fixtures, field visits, etc) are accompanied by a first aider.
