Illness in school
If a pupil becomes ill while at school, he or she is looked after in the dispensary. If the child is incapable of continuing with school lessons, he/she will need to be collected from school where possible, or looked after by a Learning Support Assistant. Parents or carers will always be informed.
If a boarding pupil is suffering from any illness which requires full-time care, arrangements will be made for the child to go home.
Our medical policy contains full details of staff training, the procedures we follow to dispense medication and prevent/respond to accidents and illness.
