When a child is taken ill at school we make every effort to contact parents if we regard it serious enough to send the child home. If a child has an accident and we consider he/she requires hospital treatment, we will again make every effort to contact parents or the emergency contact we have been given. If this fails, we take the child to hospital and continue to try and contact you once there.
For this purpose, when your child is admitted to school, we ask you to sign a form consenting to hospital treatment being given, if necessary, in your absence. Minor cuts and bruises are treated in school. Any bumps to the head are always reported to parents by a note. We will always contact you if we consider it to be serious.
