Medical conditions and emergencies
On this page of our website you can read and/or download our procedures for dealing with medical emergencies in school, as well as managing children who have medical conditions.
Within our Medical Policy you can also read and/or download how we treat children with Asthma in school. You will see below our Asthma Action Plan which can be downloaded for completion. The completed Allergy Action Plan will be kept in school for our records.
Severe Allergic Reactions
In line with our Severe Allergic Reaction guidelines, we ask parents to complete an Allergy Action Plan, so that a child’s adrenaline auto injector can be administered in the event of an emergency. This Plan can be downloaded below, and details of how we treat children with allergies is detailed in the Medical Policy.
We will keep the completed Allergy Action Plan in school for our records.
Please ensure that your child has their adrenaline auto injector and their own supply of anti-histamine medication (medicine for allergies) available for use in school. We would also like to remind you that it is your responsibility to check that the medication kept for your child in school is in date.
If there are any changes in any emergency treatment or dosage, it is essential that parents inform us so that new Action Plans can be completed.
For emergencies when a child's own inhaler is not available we have in school an emergency universal salbutamol inhaler. This will not be given without prior consent by a parent, or if we are instructed to use it by the emergency services. For further details regarding this please refer to our Medical Policy.
If you have any queries regarding any of these procedures then please contact the School Office.
