First Aid

 

First Aid

At Thongsley we have many staff who are trained to give basic first aid to pupils who need it. Several members of staff also hold a more comprehensive first aid certificate.

It is important that all contact details are up to date so that in an emergency we can contact you quickly. It is also important that we have up to date medical information and information about recent injuries so that we can support children appropriatley at school.

All accidents are recorded at school, in a designated first aid book, by the member of staff who administered the first aid. In the case of a serious accident parents will be called as quickly as possible. If we feel a child needs urgent medical attention and we can't get hold of parents then two members of staff will escort the child to Hinchingbrooke hospital and stay until a parent has arrived or if the situation is warrented serious, an ambulance will be called.

We take the care of your child very seriously and do our best to ensure their saftey at all times whilst making sure they take responsibility for their own action. 

Medicines

If your child requires medication such as Calpol, for a short term illness ( cough, toothache), parents/carers will be expected to give doses around the school day. If a dose is necessary during the school day parents/carers can come into school briefly to administer the medicine themselves.

We do not administer any medication in school other than that for long term illnesses.

Under no circumstances must children bring any form of medication into school themselves, this includes items such as Deep Heat, Calpol, travel sickness tablets and allergy medicine.

Inhalers for children should be handed to Mrs Kiley, Mrs Cutbush or Mrs Pentney and a medical form completed. Each inhaler must be in it's original box, with the prescription label stating the childs name and dispensing date clearly visable. Inlahers are kept safely in the childrens classroom where they can access it, when appropriate, under the supervision of First aider. A log is kept of when the inhaler has been used.
