Full policy: Administration of Medication and First Aid Policy – Broomhill School – February 2018
In particular we have updated our procedure for Head Bumps;
If your child sustains a head bump an ‘Injury Record’ form will be completed and sent home along with a head bump guidance letter.
- For minor bumps you will be alerted via Groupcall – parents are not required to
contact the school upon receipt of this message.
- For major bumps and visible injury we will call you directly – if we are unable to speak to you we will leave a message.
The class teacher will also receive a note alerting them to the head bump to ensure the child is monitored during the school day.
If a child becomes unwell during the school day we will contact parents/carers requesting collection. In the event of a serious incident or injury where the school is unable to provide the level of assistance required emergency services will be contacted immediately.
Further information including paper copies are available from the school office.
