Accident Procedures

1)      Accidents occur despite supervision. Minor accidents are treated at school. Slight cuts and grazes are normally treated by cleaning with cold water and applying a plaster to the wound. When a dressing has been put on a wound parents are requested to inspect the wound when the child comes home from school.

2)      In the event of a more serious accident / child becoming ill, every possible effort will be made to contact the pupils’ parents or the persons delegated to take responsibility for the pupil.

3)      The school will not accept responsibility for any medical expenses incurred.

4)      There is facility for parents to take out insurance to cover medical expenses incurred as a result of an accident at school. Details of this scheme are available to parents in September of each school year.
