Illness or Accidents at School

At times children become ill or may have an accident at school. If, in our opinion, this is of a minor nature, we will either return the child to the class or contact a parent on their emergency telephone number. If you change your number, please let the school office know as soon as possible.

If a serious accident occurs we will contact you straight away and ask you to take the child to hospital. If we are unable to reach you, we may have to arrange this ourselves.


Only certain medications are permitted at school. Parents should complete a form to request a classroom assistant to administer any medication during the day or, as in the case of children with asthma, we ask you to complete a form so the child can use their inhalers or medication themselves.


Any evidence of illegal drugs being brought onto school property will be immediately reported to the Police.

No smoking is permitted on school property.
