Medical Matters

At Beacon Rise our key priority is the well being of our pupils and staff.  All staff are first aid trained and we have a range of procedures in place to manage the medical needs of pupils.

If your child has need of permanent medication e.g. asthma inhalers etc, the medicine, which needs to be clearly marked with the child’s name and the instructions for administering it, should be left in the school office.

Should your child be ill at school we will contact you during the day to discuss the best possible solution.

Minor accidents are treated in school – e.g. bumps and grazes. In the case of more serious accidents occurring at school we will inform you immediately. In the case of a minor head bump you will be notified by text to ensure you are able to monitor your child during the evening.  In the case of more severe head injury we will contact you in the agreed manner.

If your child has been sick or had diarrhoea, please keep them at home for 48 hours after the symptoms subside. Infections of this kind spread very quickly where young children are concerned.

We are unable to administer medicines of any kind to children at school.
