First Aid

The school has a Health and Safety policy that meets the Department for Education guidance that we should have a sensible and proportionate approach to Health and Safety that promotes risk awareness/management rather than total risk avoidance.

This means that our pupils will not miss out on challenging exciting activities and learning opportunities, and the chance to develop new skills.

Occasionally children may suffer a bump or fall at school. During the school day a child may also feel sick or require medical treatment.

Headley Park have trained first aiders who can assess any injury and undertake minor first aid like cleaning a graze, applying bandages/plasters or the use of cold compresses to bumps.

What we will do

  • A trained first aider will assess the injury and provide first aid treatment.
  • If the injury is serious paramedic support will be sought.
  • If your child has bumped their head we will keep them under observation and if returned to class ensure their teacher knows.
  • Where an injury is other than minor we will contact you and discuss what has happened.
  • Children who have been given first aid will have a sticker put on their jumper/cardigan to indicate they have either had first aid or bumped their head.

Parent/Carer actions

  • When providing us with the start of year data information sheet for your child let us know if they have any medical condition or allergies. You should let us know if they have an allergic reaction to plasters or certain foods.
  • Keep us up to date with any changes.
  • In the case of food allergies, if you child is having a school meal please check the menu and the allergen information displayed in the school reception.
  • If your child comes home with a First Aid sticker please check the injury and replace any dressing.

Administration of Medicines

We want to ensure that pupils with medication receive appropriate care and support at school which supports continuity of education and wellbeing. The Headteacher, as responsible officer, authorises members of the School staff in giving or supervising pupils taking prescribed medication during the school day where the administration of the medication is not unduly onerous.

Please note the school is only able to administer medication prescribed by a Medical or Dental Practitioner displaying a pharmaceutical label printed with your child’s name.

The school can NOT administer ANY OTHER MEDICATION

If you wish you child to be given prescribed medication at school please complete a Prescribed Medication Record Card which is available in the online forms section of this website or from the School office.

If children refuse to take medicines, staff will not force them to do so, and will inform the parents of the refusal, as a matter of urgency, on the same day. If a refusal to take medicines results in an emergency, the school’s emergency procedures will be followed.

 

It is your responsibility to notify the school in writing if your child’s need for medication has ceased. It is also your responsibility to renew the medication when supplies are running low and to ensure that the medication supplied is within its expiry date. Parents will be reminded if staff identify supplies are running low on a best endeavours basis.

Well done to the Y5/6 boys on their 6-0 South Bristol League win against Cheddar Grove this afternoon.

They played some unbelievable football and were a great example of what #TeamHP represents. 👏
