At Fiddlers Lane Community Primary School we have a number of staff who are First Aid trained and can treat minor injuries that may occur during the school day.
If a child has an accident at school, it is assessed by one of our First Aiders.
Parents will always be notified of bumps to the head. We will make parents aware of how the incident occurred and advise that you look out for symptoms of concussion.
Is My Child Too Ill For School?
At Fiddlers Lane, we know when your child is unwell it can be hard deciding whether to keep them off school.
These simple guidelines should help.
Not every illness needs to keep your child from school. If you keep your child away from school, be sure to inform the school on the first day of their absence.
Use common sense when deciding whether or not your child is too ill to attend school. Ask yourself the following questions.
• Is my child well enough to do the activities of the school day? If not, keep your child at home.
• Does my child have a condition that could be passed on to other children or school staff? If so, keep your child at home.
• Would I take a day off work if I had this condition? If so, keep your child at home.
Symptoms of coronavirus in children
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
• a high temperature
• a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
• a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
What to do if your child has symptoms
If your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
1. Get a test to check if they have coronavirus as soon as possible.
2. You, your child and anyone else you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have the test.
