Medical Arrangements

In order to ensure that the health and medical needs of our pupils are met at school we have a medical officer, who co-ordinates all matters relating to the health and medical needs of the pupils.  A health care plan is produced for each pupil which details their needs and provision to meet their needs.  Medical records are kept for all our pupils.

The medical officer meets with parents and carers when their child is admitted to the school in order to compile their medical history.  The Head of Care oversees the administration of any medication necessary for the pupils at school.  We ask that all medication is sent to school in the container in which it was dispensed with the instructions for administration and signed permission from parents for its administration.

Our residential pupils are registered with the doctor at Rainworth Health Centre.  The medical officer arranges for screening by the school dental service and the optician, and for routine immunisation programmes to be carried out.  When necessary the medical officer accompanies pupils to hospital or dental appointments.  The school has a number of qualified first aiders to provide emergency aid.
