If a pupil has a medical need then a detailed Care Plan is compiled with support from the Health Service in consultation with parents/carers. These are discussed with all staff who are involved with the pupil.
Staff receive Epipen training when required.
Where necessary and in agreement with parents/carers medicines are administered in school but only where a signed Medicine consent form is in place to ensure the safety of both child and staff member.
A number of staff have basic first aid training, including specialism in first aid at work or paediatric first aid.
