We have a number of members of staff that are trained First Aiders, including some who are paediatric first aid trained, who deal with cuts and abrasions. In dealing with cuts we may only use water. Please let us know if your child is allergic to plasters. If there is a serious accident, we will contact a Parent/Carer immediately, and if necessary will arrange for an ambulance to take your child to hospital. It is therefore vital that you keep the school informed of any changes of contact phone numbers of all nominated emergency contacts. The school phone is 020 7254 1148.
Children in year 6 may leave a phone at the front office after written consent from their parent. It must be delivered there at the beginning of the school day and collected at the end. It must be switched off during the school day. The school cannot take responsibility for any loss or damage..
Jewellery is not allowed, with the exception of watches, small stud earrings or a crucifix which remain the responsibility of the child.
