​​Sick ​​Children 

A first aid room​ is provided in a room adjacent to the office.  If a child is sent to the first aid room he/she will be supervised and parents will be notified as soon as possible, so that the child can be collected.  Parents will be notified if a child spends regular time in the first aid room.  A child should be kept at home if unwell to avoid passing on the condition to others - see Reducing the Spread of Infections.

Reducing t​he Spread of Infections

Infections with ​​or without illness, are common in children. When children attend school they are exposed to a large number of children, increasing the opportunity for the spread of infectious diseases. It is not possible to prevent the spread of all infections and illnesses within schools, however a lot of illnesses from infectious disease can be prevented.​
