HEALTH CARE – FIRST AID/NURSING ASSISTANT
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.
Wednesday 16th November at 7pm – See attached letter for details
Please find attached the latest Kemnay Academy Newsletter with all our up to date news of the last term.
The Nursing Assistant provision in the Academy will be limited to the hours of 10.30am-2.00pm over the next few weeks. If a pupil presents unwell outside of these hours then parents will be contacted to arrange collection.
The school is hosting a careers event on Wednesday 9 Nov. Pupils will get the opportunity to view stalls during the school day. Parents/carers welcome from 1730-1930hrs

Parents/carers using the online payment facility are now required to create a Myaccount username and password (click here for instructions or here to watch a YouTube Video). If you have any concerns or issues with this new process please contact the helpline on 03456 08 12 02.
For all school payments please click on the following link and select “School Meals” .
Many thanks to all parents and carers who have already made payments.
