Your child's health and well-being

The school has received a NHS Self-Care Bronze Award for the work it has done in promoting and working in partnership with the parents to reduce absence and visits to the doctor's for ailments that are treatable at home.
The school's work has been recognised and presented in a case study by the Vale Royal Clinical Commissioning Group. You can read the case study here

On a day to day in school....

First Aid

Emergency first aid training is given to all staff and they are supported by staff, who are fully trained first aiders. The school nurse visits school to carry out developmental check-ups and offer advice to staff and parents. The school nurse team also come into school in November to give the Fluenz vaccination (Nasal spary) to children from YR-Y5 (with parental consent).
A minor accident note is sent home with the child for the parents following a minor accident in school.
Stings and head bumps are reported to the parent by text or phone call. Please ensure we have an emergency contact number which will be readily answered. All medical information must be detailed on the admission form so that we have the correct information in an emergency.

Illness
Please see the attached NHS guide (Feb 2019) for advice about childhood illnesses; which require a stay off school and for how long and which illnesses a child may have and still be able to attend school.

Medicines
If a child requires prescribed medication please contact the school office for advice about administration.

Well-being

Children can go through lots of life experiences: marriage break-ups, bereavement of close family members and pets, a close family member being very poorly and possibly hospitalised for a long period of time, older siblings leaving home....In school, we may notice that a child is 'not quite the same as usual'. They may be a little withdrawn or show frustration or anger, or not be bothered with their work whereas usually they are very conscientious.

Whilst we may notice changes and try to support a child, it is very helpful if parents and carers share, in confidence, with the class teacher or the head-teacher anything happening out of school that may be affecting a child's well-being. We can then work together to give the appropriate support.

As a school, we are working closely with Cheshire East and our partnership schools in Nantwich to become more aware of the mental health difficulties that children (and adults) can experience. We are working together to offer support through good practice training and our links with external agencies skilled in this field. Please read our 'Emotionally Healthy Schools' page on the website for more information.
