Is my child too ill for school?
Please see the NHS website for guidance on whether you should send your child into school.
Our training is provided by Hampshire Outdoors: Skills and Participation, and we currently have nineteen members of staff who are trained to deliver Paediatric First Aid.
All first-aid incidents are recorded electronically and parents will be informed of injuries during the school day - by telephone wherever possible - if they are head-related or if they cause on-going concern. Children who bump heads will return home with a brightly coloured bumped-head band.
Our full First Aid Policy can be found under Safeguarding and Pastoral in the policies section of website.
In line with the duty, which came into force on 1st September 2014, to support pupils at school with medical conditions we are committed to ensuring that all children with medical conditions, in terms of both physical and mental health, are properly supported at St Faith’s Church of England Primary School so that they can play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.
Our full medical polices can be found under Safeguarding and Pastoral in the policies section of website. We are able to administer medicines in school upon satisfactory completion of a medical consent form, available below:
We work to support Southern Health in administering the winter flu vaccine to all year groups. The flu vaccine will be administered on Wednesday 6th December 2023.
