Accidents and Illnesses in SchoolhealthAndSafety

If your child is ill or has an accident during the school day they will be checked by a member of staff who is trained in First Aid. We have staff in all areas of the school that are paediatric trained.  If we feel it necessary we will contact you using the details you give us on your child’s contact form.  It is therefore extremely important that these numbers are kept up to date and you inform the school office of any changes.

 

In the case of small scrapes or bruises we normally inform parents through the use of a slip that will be passed to you at the end of the school day.  In the case of a bump to the head it is the academy’s policy to try to contact you by telephone even if your child seems fine. If we are unable to contact you, your child will be closely monitored and a slip will be passed to you at the end of the day.

 

If we have a concern or we feel your child would benefit from being at home we will contact you as soon as possible.

Head Lice

Unfortunately head lice are a fact of school life and are in no way related to poor hygiene. Please inform school if you discover lice in your child’s hair. Head lice are not a reason for absence; children can be in school as soon as the hair is treated.

Child Protection

Parents/carers need to know that any allegation or disclosure of abuse by a child or adult will be responded to by the Head Teacher, who will follow the Child Protection guidance issued by the Local Children’s Safeguarding Board. This is a legal requirement.

All staff are trained in Child Protection, PREVENT and Safeguarding. The Head Teacher and Governors have undertaken special training including safe recruitment of staff. All staff have a current DBS and long term volunteers are also police checked. Volunteers working with children are all supervised. We operate a secure door entry system, badge and check identities of visitors. There are a range of related policies and procedures available on request.

Operation Encompass

Easterside Academy is working in partnership with Cleveland Police. The project aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse. Witnessing domestic abuse is really distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent’s injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.

This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our school the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Thursday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.

A nominated member of school staff, known as a key adult, has been trained to liaise with the police. They will be able to use information that has been shared with them, in confidence, to ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families. Information will be shared where it is identified that a child or young person was present, witnessed or was involved in a domestic abuse incident.

Medicines in School

At times it may be necessary for your child to take medicines for an illness whilst still attending school. In such cases nominated school staff will only administer medicines that have been prescribed by a doctor and carry the child’s name on the prescription label of the bottle. Parents will need to complete a form at the school office before any medicines can be administered.healthAndSafety2

Asthma

If your child suffers with asthma please complete a form at the office detailing their treatment and any triggers so that we can ensure your child’s details are on our asthma register. If your child requires an inhaler to be kept in school this must be clearly labelled and given to the school office or class teacher. Parents are responsible for ensuring asthma medication is up to date.
