Illnesses and Medicines

 
Illness and Medicines
In order to be fair to the staff and other children, the Pre-School cannot accept a child who is unwell. There are guidelines about how long a child needs to stay away from school with a particular illness, so if you are unsure please ask. For example with diarrhoea and vomiting, a child must not return until 48 hours after the symptoms have settled. If your child has a minor accident like a bump or graze, you will be asked to confirm that you have been told about it by signing the accident book.

The staff can only give children medicines prescribed by a Doctor. If your child needs medication while at school please speak to the Pre-School Management. You will need to complete a form, which gives staff permission to administer the medicines.

Head lice can sometimes be a problem. You will be notified each time there is a case in school.
