Medical Service

There is a school nurse, Mrs Aileen Napper, who can be contacted through the school for advice, or if need be, directly on 01983 821388.  The medical service provides:

Ø  Inspections for school entrants;

Ø  Inspections for other children on request;

 

The school nurse does not inspect for head lice.  We ask you to check your child’s hair regularly and treat if necessary.  Head lice are a considerable nuisance, but we have a collective responsibility to keep this to a minimum.  If your child has active head lice we may ask you to treat them so that they do not pass to other children.  We have adopted the Policy on Head lice agreed by all Isle of Wight Primary Schools.

 

Medicines

Staff do not normally administer medicines in school, though in exceptional cases it may be possible to arrange this – this is normally for conditions such as asthma.  We require parents/carers to complete a consent form available in the school office.
