When children come into school, we ask you to fill in a form giving us:
The name of your Child
Telephone number and e-mail address
It is important that you give the school the name and telephone number of the person to contact during the day if your child should feel unwell. This can be you, a relative or a neighbour. This is essential in case of an accident or an emergency.
Please let us know of any changes in this information.
School class staff are not allowed to give children medicines. However, where children need long-term medication, for example, asthma inhalers or drugs controlling long-term illnesses, we have qualified pediatric first aiders and 4 staff with specific training to oversee the administration of medicines. To enable us to do this, we need written permission from you and details of its administration from your doctor. You must also ensure the medicine left in school is within the use-by date. If you feel that your child suffers from any condition which will affect him/her in school, please let us know so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
Antibiotics, cough medicines and paracetamol should be given at home.
THE SAFETY OF CHILDREN IS EVERYONE’S CONCERN
The children should enter and leave the school through the door nearest to their classrooms. Children should be encouraged to use the entrances and paths provided.
Both car parks are very crowded; they are also used by delivery vans and the Community Centre. Parents must not bring cars into either closed car park to collect or deliver children. The school gates are closed at peak times for safety reasons. An additional car park is provided on Douglas Street or please park on Saltwells Road. Parking is always difficult near a school, we ask parents to be patient and walk with their children whenever possible.
When parking near the school, please remember to avoid the crossing points so children can see the road and cross it safely.
No-one wants to witness or be responsible for a child having an accident
