Reminder: Medication Information regarding pupils

There has been a recent incident in one of our schools where vital medical information regarding a pupil had not been passed on to all staff. This made a medical emergency more difficult to deal with than it needed to be, both for the pupil and the member of staff dealing with the emergency.

Please ensure that your system for informing staff of pupils’ medical needs is robust. When accepting new pupils’ ask about their medical history, inform staff who need to know about medical needs. Some examples, class teacher or tutor group leader, first aiders, PE staff for children with asthma, meal time staff for pupils with food allergies, and so on.

 

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
