Health and Wellbeing
What is our policy on administering medication?
This information can be requested from the school office.
How do we work with families to draw up a care plan?
- A meeting is held between parents/carers and school staff as well as any other professionals that need to be involved.
- The resulting plan is shared with adults in school who need to be aware of particular needs.
What does the school do in the event of an emergency?
- If a child has a care plan, staff will follow the steps documented in this.
- For all children, staff trained in first aid deal with the individual and parents/carers informed. Where necessary, 999 will be called. In the absence of a parent/carer, a member of school staff would accompany the child to hospital.
How do we ensure staff are trained/qualified to deal with a child's particular needs?
- Relevant staff undertake the necessary training through courses offered by the local authority or by private companies.
Which health or therapy services can children access on school premises?
- There are no services based full-time at The Friars Primary School.
- Facilities are available for services working in the school (e.g. withdrawal rooms).
- Referrals can be made to a range of services, including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), the Educational Psychology Service (EPS), Speech and Language Therapy (SaLT) etc.
