First Aid Procedures
Students are sent to Sick Bay from either the classroom or the playground with either sickness or injury with a note or a "First Aid" card from the supervising teacher and a short description. Students are then asked by the First Aid Officer on duty a number of questions to describe the nature of illness/injury eg. What happened? How they are feeling? Where does it hurt? This enables the First Aid Officer to ascertain the appropriate action to be taken.
- Details of the Student and the nature of their illness/injury are recorded.
- Parents/Carers will be informed by phone if a head injury has occurred.
- Parents may be phoned to advise of the illness and may be requested or choose to collect their child from School, if necessary. If a student requests that a parent be phoned we will endeavour to do so. In other cases a note will be sent home with the child advising that they have been in sick bay that day. Please note: If a child does leave school early they must been signed out by a parent/carer at the front office
- To enable immediate and effective contact with parents/carers please ensure that the School Office is immediately informed of any changes to contact phone numbers.
- Whilst in Sick Bay students are observed at the Front Office by a monitor screen as well as being regularly checked upon by the First Aid Officer
