Dear Parents, We would both like to offer you a very warm welcome to The Crescent Academy. We encourage all of our parents to become a part of our rich and welcoming family.
The school’s policy states that staff will only give medicines to children when prior consultation has taken place with the school. Parents will be asked to hand in medicines to the Wellbeing Centre and give exact details for administering them. A report of school actions is then handed over upon collection.
Alternatively, parents may come into school to administer medication themselves. Children with asthma should have inhalers with them at all times, even when outside doing PE, or on school trips.
There are many trained first aiders in school. There are many first aid kits placed around school and designated officers have portable kits with them at all times.
Should children get hurt during the day parents will be kept fully informed and a note will be sent home with the child.
It is essential that parents keep school well informed about any changes in a child’s health.
