The School Nurse, is available every day and can be found in the First Aid Room in the main Manor House. If there is anything you would like to discuss with her please feel free to drop in at any time.
There may be times when your child needs to take medication during the school day eg antibiotics or pain relief. When this is the case, please send it in with the pharmacy label intact and with written authorisation.
Request to Give Medication Form
All children who suffer from asthma should have their blue ‘reliever’ inhaler in school with them at all times, which can either be kept in their bag or in the classroom. Spare inhalers may be kept in the cupboard in the First Aid Room if required.
We keep a supply of hypoallergenic plasters in the First Aid Room to use in the event of a minor injury but please let us know if your child has had a reaction to plasters in the past and an alternative dressing can be used.
If your child becomes unwell during the day, with a fever, or is in pain we can give Calpol appropriate to your child’s age and will telephone to confirm this before administering the medication on each occasion.
Diarrhoea and vomiting illnesses are easily spread amongst children, and the Health Protection Agency - along with The Manor's own medical policy - recommend not sending your child back into school for at least 48 hours from the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.
Please keep us informed of any changes in your child’s medical or dietary requirements.
Please feel free to contact the School Nurse, Mrs Judy Ramm on 01235 858473 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
