The First Aid box is kept in the servery and is well stocked for both staff and children’s aid. First aid for children is limited to the use of cold water or cold water compress (no longer than ten minutes), wipes and copious TLC! No medication may be administered in school without parent’s permission (see Managing Medicines Policy). All first aid given should be recorded in the First Aid book in the cupboard in the servery.
If any accident does happen, resulting in an injury to a child, the nearest member of staff will do al s/he can to aid the child concerned, until the first aider arrives. When help is needed, a child may be sent to find another adult using the ‘help’ card. We keep a first aid box in the servery and in each classroom. The following staff have received first aid training and hold current certificates: Should any incident involving injury to a child take place, one of the above- mentioned members of staff will be called to assist. If necessary, the school secretary or headteacher will telephone for emergency assistance. Anyone who is not trained in at least basic first aid must not attempt to administer first aid. For any serious injury, the qualified First Aider must be informed, if not immediately as soon as possible, since it is her responsibility to ensure that any treatment and recording is appropriate.
1.3 We record all incidents involving injury that receive treatment in the school logbook, and we inform parents in all cases of head injury. Should a child be seriously hurt, we use the emergency telephone number(s) that we keep on the school files. Serious accidents are recorded on an accident form (kept in school office), a copy of which is sent to County.
1.4 On any residential visit or out of school day visits, an adult with at least a basic first aid certificate will be present.
