What to do if your child has an accident, injury or operation.

 

 

 

If your child has an accident, injury or operation please give the school as much notice as possible. This to enable us to ensure that as much as possible everything is in place for us to be able to support children upon their return to school.

 

In particular if your child has an operation please contact the school as soon as possible when you know your child is going to be able to return to school. The school office will make the appropriate arrangements, once they have spoken to the appropriate person.

 

If your child is returning to school from accident, injury or operation you will be asked some questions in regard to your child, the accident, injury or operation. This is for us to ensure we have or can put everything place for your child to be safe at school and for us to be able to support them accordingly.

 

 

Medication at school.

 

At The Discovery School we are happy to support children with medication. Where possible we ask that medication is administered at home.

 

If medication does need to be administered at school we ask that the following steps are taken to ensure the correct and safe administration of medication.

 

  1. You complete a medication administration permission form. (Downloadable version available on this page or a paper copy can be obtain from the office )

  2. All medicine along with a completed medication permission form is handed into the office.

 

 

ALL PRESCRIBED MEDICATION HANDED INTO THE OFFICE MUST HAVE THE PHARMACY LABEL ON IT AND IT MUST BE CLEAR AND VISIBLE.
