Somerhill has a dedicated team of two school nurses who oversee the medical needs of our pupils from our onsite medical centre. They are responsible for pupil medical records, first aid and where necessary the administration of medication. It there is any change to your child’s medical status, please ensure you advise them immediately via email: email@example.com. If your child becomes unwell during the day, we will call you to make arrangements for your child to be collected as soon as possible.
Parents are asked to adhere to the school First Aid Policy with regards to sickness and diarrhoea and keep their child away from school for a minimum of 48 hours from the last episode.
If an injury or illness occurs that, in the school nurse’s opinion, requires hospital treatment, every effort will be made to contact a parent or emergency contact.
