Injuries to Pupils/ Emergencies
It is important that the school has on file an accurate record of parent/caregiver telephone numbers and an additional emergency number. If changing address or work place, please remember to notify the school office. In the event of a serious accident, every effort will be made to contact a parent/caregiver as soon after the accident as possible. If we are in any doubt at all, we take the most cautious approach and may require that a child be taken from school to be checked by the family doctor, or in the event of a serious injury, an ambulance may be called.
Administration of Medication by School Staff
The staff of the school are willing to administer medication to your child subject to the following conditions:
- The medication is provided to the school office by the parent/caregiver of the child and is clearly labelled and named.
- Written instructions are to be provided to the school office regarding how the medication is to be administered: which medication; in what quantity and when it is to be administered. A form is available at the office.
