ILLNESS
 

If your child is unwell, please phone the school on 01481 722412 or email office@notredame.sch.gg stating the reason for your child's absence.

 

Please note that if your child has been sick or has had diarrhoea, they should not come back to school until 48 hours after the last time they have been ill.

 

Only medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor can be administered to a pupil at school and a consent form will need to be signed by the parent/carer. The form can be collected from the school office and all medication will need to be handed in there.  Please do not pass on any medication to the class teachers/teaching assistants. Please note that you will still need to complete the consent form that can be found on our website and email it to the office at office@notredame.sch.gg.  If we don’t receive permission by the parent/carer in writing we won’t be able to administer the medicine.

Please note parents/carers are responsible for collecting and disposing of any unused medication from the school office.

 

If you have identified your child as having a medical condition e.g. asthma, please be aware it is your responsibility to inform the school and provide the relevant prescribed medication and a Doctors letter/Care Plan to the school. 

 

Medication kept in school e.g. inhalers/epipens – all medication will be returned to the pupil’s parent/carer at the end of the school year.   If your child still requires to have medication kept in school at the beginning of the new academic year this will need to be returned to the school office together with an updated care plan if there has been any changes to your child’s medical needs.  Please do not pass any medication to the class teachers or teaching assistants.

 

Bumps to head: If your child receives a bump or injury to the head, you will be notified in the form of a yellow slip.
