School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the School Office.
If your child needs first aid at school...
We are committed to providing first class, first aid provision in order to deal with accidents and incidents affecting our children, staff and visitors to our premises. Our duty to provide first aid at work is governed by the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. We carry out risk assessments in order to determine what first aid facilities and personnel are necessary to meet the needs of our school.
First Aid Procedures
In the event of an accident resulting in injury:
When taking pupils off the school premises, staff will ensure they always have the following:
Risk assessments will be completed by the trip leader prior to any educational visit that necessitates taking pupils off school premises. There will always be at least one first aider with a current pediatric first aid certificate on school trips and visits, as required by the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.
School will inform parents of any accident or injury sustained by a pupil, and any first aid treatment given, on the same day, or as soon as reasonably practicable. Parents will be provided with an 'Accident Report' slip which gives information about any injury.
