The school has a Medical Room where children are treated for First Aid when they become unwell in school. Minor treatment is provided by staff who hold current First Aid Qualifications.

Whilst we fully encourage 100% attendance, please do not send your child into school if they are obviously unwell at the start of the day. You must advise us by telephone/email of the nature of the illness on the first day of absence and every day thereafter.
