Parents are welcome to send into school any specific medication their daughter might need, which is always kept safe in either a locked cabinet or a fridge in the school office.
Our school caters for students with sensitivity to allergens and other intolerances. Please ensure that you complete and sign the ‘Allergens and Intolerances’ form when your daughter joins the school. If your daughter has no allergens or intolerances, please still complete the form with her name and stating ‘Not Applicable’, to complete school records.
The school’s policy for the care of medically diagnosed asthma is available on the school website and has been devised with the help of health professionals and advice taken from the Asthma UK site. Once a student has been diagnosed as suffering from asthma, it is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school immediately so that the school can undertake to obtain further information regarding their daughter’s medical needs. A medical questionnaire will then be sent to parents for completion and returned to the school.
Parents must ensure:
Unless directed by a health professional, we would not expect a child to check their peak flows while at school.
In the event of emergency treatment being needed, this will be carried out as detailed on the Asthma UK Attack Card, a copy of which can be obtained from Asthma UK. If your daughter suffers from this condition, please ensure that you have completed and signed the ‘Asthma Procedure’ when she joins the school.
