Medical Room

Meet The Team


Our medical room is staffed by qualified first aiders and is open all day.

If a student needs to visit the medical room during lesson time, a teacher will give permission to go to the medical room.  The medical room is not a substitute for a visit to the GP; the school is unable to make any diagnosis.




The rules around medicines in schools are very strict.  Should a student require medication during school hours we require a consent form to be completed.  This can be obtained from the link below, or from the main reception.  This must be signed by a parent/carer.


Communication Home


The decision as to whether a child should be sent home will be made by the school first aider, who will contact the relevant parent/carer to advise them of the situation.


No communication should be made between a student and their parent/carer at any time during the school day. In addition, parents/carers should not collect an unwell student without speaking to the staff in the medical room.


If an ambulance is required for a child, then the parent/carer is contacted.  The child will always be accompanied to hospital by a member of staff if the parent/carer cannot get to the school in time.


Any visits to the medical room will be recorded on our school system.  Depending on the severity of the injury/illness, you may also receive a telephone call.


School Nurse Service


 Are you worried/concerned about your child?  The School Nurse Service can work both in and out of school to help provide or find support with a number of issues.  For more information, please download this information sheet or view their website here -
