Threadworms are very common among young children and we would like to provide some guidance for you so that you can spot the signs and act upon it.

For more information, please visit: -http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/T...

If your child has a threadworm infection, it is not necessary to stay off school. However, it's important to inform us so that we can they can take steps to limit the spread of infection.

Thank you for your co-operation.

 

If your child has been prescribed medication for a short term illness, a member of staff can administer the medication on your behalf, providing a medical consent form has been completed. (Forms are available at the school office). Parents must bring the medication to the school office. 

 

THE MEDICATON MUST NOT BE GIVEN TO THE CHILD TO BRING TO THE OFFICE OR HANDED TO A CLASS TEACHER. IF A CONSENT FORM HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED, THEN THE MEDICATION WILL NOT BE ADMINISTERED.

 

The school will keep a record of relevant information when it has administered prescription medicine (i.e. date and time of administration) for reference purposes.

 

The school will not administer any form of non prescription medication i.e.

Calpol

Nurofen

Piriton

Or any other type of preparatory product i.e. antiseptic creams or lotions without the consent of the parent.

 

Please be reminded that no nuts or nut products, such as peanut butter, are to be included in your child’s packed lunch.

Thank you for your co-operation.
