First Aid

Coronavirus Closure

Following government guidelines, Sir Jonathan North is now closed. Beauchamp College in Oadby will be open to children of key workers at Sir Jonathan North, Judgemeadow  and Brocks Hill Primary School who have registered for a place.

A First Aid Officer is available to deal with any emergency medical concerns that arise during the day.

She is available in the medical room during break time. In the case of a medical emergency, your child will need to report to student reception who will then contact the First Aid Officer. If your daughter is judged to be too unwell to remain at College, we will contact you (or the named person on the contact form) and arrange for your daughter to be collected. It is important, therefore, that if you change your address or telephone number, you let us know immediately. The school is unable to give pain killers. If your daughter is likely to need to take some during the day, she should carry two tablets with her.

 

Ongoing Medical Conditions

Please ensure that you have informed the school in writing about any health issues or concerns. Please do not rely on information automatically being transferred from the Primary Schools as on occasion there might be a delay in the transfer of files.  Most children with medical needs can attend school regularly and take part in normal activities, sometimes with some support. However, staff may need to take extra care in supervising some activities to make sure that these children, and others, are not put at risk.

Your child is allowed to bring medication into College. If your child requires medicines to be kept on the school site please contact the SENCO, Ms Pinger, at the College. She will arrange to meet with you and produce a General Care Plan which requires your signature. We will ask you to provide full information about your daughter’s medical needs, including details of medicines that your child may require.  All medication e.g. spare epi pens, spare inhalers should be handed in to the First Aid Officer for safe-keeping. Please note the expiry date and supply replacements as necessary.
