It is very important that you advise us if your child suffers from any allergies, including food-diagnosed allergies, or from any other medical condition including asthma. Asterdale will arrange a medical planning meeting where we can record the details of your child's medical needs, any treatment they require and what we should do in case of an emergency.
Please do let us know if your child has an infectious illness such as rubella, conjunctivitis, head lice, impetigo, measles or ringworm.
Illness during the day:
If your child becomes ill during the day, we will always contact you, having taken the necessary steps ourselves to ensure your child is safe and cared for. It is vital that we have your up-to-date contact numbers at all times, particularly mobile telephone numbers and that someone is able, if necessary to take your child home.
Asterdale is only able to store and administer medication, which has been prescribed by a doctor for your child. If your child requires prescribed medication during the school day, please contact the office who can provide you with the necessary form and arrange a medical planning meeting if appropriate. Medicines are kept at school and administered by trained staff.
Please let the school office staff and class teacher know if your child has asthma. Please clearly name any inhalers. Inhalers are always taken on school trips.
