First Aid in the Academy


All parents/carers should be aware that specific school staff attend to first aid.  First Aid provision in school is provided by a Nursing Assistant.  The First Aid provision in school is designed to deal with routine medical and first aid matters.  Should a young person be injured during the school day, every effort will be made to attend to this.  If the injury is believed to be serious or requiring further treatment, arrangments will be made to have the child treated at the local Health Centre.  Alternatively, an ambulance will be requested.  Parents will be informed and consulted.

If your child is ill in the morning, it is important that they are kept at home, as the school has few facilities to accommodate sick children.

Illness: If a pupil becomes ill during the school day, a first aider will be called.  A decision will then be taken to either keep the pupil in school or to arrange, after consultation with parents for the pupil to be sent home.


First Aid is not one of the School Nurse’s duties but she may attend to pupils who may become ill or are injured during the day if she is available.

Please tell us as soon as possible if your child has a specific medical condition.  The school Health Team, (eg school Doctor, School nurse, Speech and language therapist etc) working in partnership with parents and teachers, carries out assessments to ensure the best level of health for all school children.  The School Nurse Service within the Academy also provides vaccination clinics specific to vaccines required between the ages of 12-18 years.
