Medical Matters

Children With Medical Conditions

Parents are asked to indicate to the school any medical conditions, which might affect their child’s schooling. It is vital that the school is aware of eyesight or hearing problems.


Please contact the school or leave a message on the pupil absence line before 9.30am to advise if your child is going to be absent from school due to sickness.

Sickness Guidelines for Exclusion from School

Please note that for all sickness and diarrhoea related illnesses, the school would not expect the child to return to school until 48 hours have elapsed since the last episode. An early return will result in parents being contacted to take their child home.

Management of Headlice

Headlice are extremely common in close-knit environments such as schools. As soon as the child has been treated they can return to school.

Medicines in School

From time to time your child may be well enough to attend school but requires medicine throughout the day. Please read the attached Administration of Medicines Policy giving details of when this is possible and what information we need from you.

First Aid in School

We have a number of staff qualified to undertake first aid.  If the member of staff feels it is serious enough for you to be aware of your child will either bring home a note giving details of the incident or the member of staff will try to contact you by telephone to ensure you are informed should further treatment become necessary.

Unwell Children

Parents are contacted by telephone whenever a child is considered to be too ill to remain in school.

For this reason it is vital that the school has up-to-date Home and Work telephone numbers to ring in the event of an emergency.

In the case of serious accidents, pupils are sent, or taken to, the casualty department at Hull Royal Infirmary for treatment.

In such a situation the parents are consulted first if this is at all possible. All serious accidents are reported on a standard form, which is submitted, to the Education Authority.
