Health & Safety

Child Protection

The health, safety and wellbeing of children is of paramount importance to all of the adults in our school.  If any member of staff suspects that a child may be a victim of abuse, they immediately inform the Designated Professional about their concern. If a child alleges abuse, the school has a duty of care to contact Children’s Service. The school has designated professionals who have received appropriate training and support for this role. The Designated Professional is Miss Sharon Letch. A copy of the child protection policy can be found within the policies section of the website.

Health Care

When your child starts full time school you are required to complete a Health Screening questionnaire.  This is sent to the School Nurse who is bases at Grand Union Village.  Routine hearing tests are carried out for all children in Reception Year.  The School Health Advisor visits regularly and parents may contact her at the Grand Union Village Health Centre.

We have a welfare room and all minor injuries are attended to by qualified first-aiders. Parents will be contacted in an emergency or if a child becomes ill during the school day.  If your child is suffering from vomiting and/or diarrhoea please ensure they are kept at home for 48 hours after the last incident. Medicines, if prescribed by a Doctor, can be given in school if needed. You will be required to complete a permission form with the Welfare Officer.
