Injuries at School

It is unavoidable with 500 pupils at school that injuries and accidents happen. We always maintain a team of staff members with current first aid certificates ready to help as needed. 

Our school procedure when dealing with a head knock or head injury is that we will always phone parents to let them know. Even if it seems like a minor head knock and everything seems okay we will let you know so you can be aware if anything crops up later in the day.
