Child Health & Wellbeing

The NHS Better Health website provides lots of facts about healthy food, recipes to try and activities to improve your family's health and wellbeing, and they have also now just launched the free NHS Food Scanner App. With a speedy scan of your family's favourite foods, parents can find healthier swaps for the next time they shop.

Health Conditions including Asthma

If your child has a long term medical condition which requires close monitoring, please speak to the school office who can put you in touch with the SENCo to discuss any specific needs. You may need to fill out a Healthcare Plan, for example if your child requires an epipen.


If your child has asthma and requires medication for this condition, the school will need you to fill out an Asthma Care Plan.

Medication

The school is not allowed to administer paracetamol/ibuprofen to children. If this has been recommended by a health professional for a long term medical condition, please contact the school office.

If your child requires antibiotics, we can administer a single dose, only if they have been prescribed 4 times per day. Otherwise we ask that you fit around school times. You will need to complete a medication form.

School Health Service

The School Health Service supports young people, their parents or carers and schools to promote healthy lifestyles and improve and maintain health and wellbeing. Pupils that are emotionally and physically healthy are best able to achieve their educational potential.

Tackle Child Abuse Campaign

The government has launched a campaign called 'Together we can tackle child abuse'. The resources, aimed at everyone in the community, could be used with parents and include four very short videos explaining physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and online abuse.

The simple mnemonic, ABC, is used to remind people that they should look out for changes in appearance, behaviour or communication. The webpage has a search engine to find out where to report abuse.
