Where staff need additional training for a medical need, then a detailed Care Plan is written with support from the School Nurse in consultation with parents/carers. These are discussed with all staff who are involved with the pupil.
Staff who volunteer to administer specific care plans will complete formal training and be verified by the school nurse as being competent. Medicines can be administered in school but only where a signed medicine consent form is in place.
The school will only administer medication prescribed by the doctor.
2 members of staff have first aid training, foundation stage staff have paediatric first aid and the remaining staff are emergency first aid trained. This is updated every three years.
