Zaytouna Primary School

Children's Health

  • Most of our school staff are trained to administer first aid, with refresher training done annually.
  • Our office staff are trained to administer medicine in school, this includes prescribed and non-prescribed medicine (eg Calpol). In order to safely administer medicine we require a parent to sign a form giving consent and the full details ie medicine name/time/dosage. Prescription medicine must have a label on clearing showing the child's name, name of medicine, dosage and frequency, and any special storage arrangements.
  • We required all medical information to be declared upon admission to Zaytouna, and should anything change then it is parent responsibility to inform school.
  • If your child is asthmatic, we will require a spare one to be kept in school, it is also a benefit for younger children if they have a spacer.
  • If your child has an allergy, please ensure we have a copy of their medicine plan (in particular nut allergies), along with two epipens.
  • If your child is absent from school for a period of time relating to medical, we will ask for proof of medical care or medicine being obtained. 
  • School and home need to work together to ensure children attend school most of the time, medical conditions or allergies should not be a barrier for losing out on education and taking part in extra-curricular activities.
  • If you have any concerns about your child's health please speak to a member of staff, we will try and help as much as possible.
