Here at RGS we have a dedicated team of First Aid trained staff, who can support students with illness, injury and medical conditions.
This can be a pre existing injury/illness or if something was to happen during the school day.
The team all have three day first aid qualifications, with some staff having additional training in the following areas:
- Administration of medication
- Diabetes (including administration of Insulin)
- Epilepsy (Including administration of Midazolam)
- Concussion awareness
- Pediatric First Aid
- AED/Defib training
- Anaphylaxis (including administration of Epi-Pen)
- Other more specific training/Training can also be requested if required.
*Please note we are not GP’s, and are unable to diagnose students, If needed a First Aider will advise you to be seen by medical professionals such as a doctor or nurse.
Please be aware, that a member of the first aid team will ALWAYS call home for a head of facial injury, no matter how minor, This is for information only this does not always mean there is a significant injury, but staff will always speak to you, leave a Voicemail, and send you a Email from Medical tracker.
Who to contact:
If you have any questions, or updates in regards to First aid or a medical condition, please email: email@example.com or call us on 0117 3533200
If your child is absent due to illness or injury, please report this to Student Absence:
If your child needs to come home during the school day, due to injury or illness, a parent or carer will need to collect. Students will not be able to make their own way home, this is due to safeguarding and the wellbeing of the child.
If your child needs medication, we can store it in the first aid room, all stored medication needs to be in its original packaging ,with a name on it. Please ensure you complete a storage of medication form to enable us to keep it on site.
If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, there is a 48 hour clear rule. We kindly ask you to keep your child at home for a minimum of48 hours from the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.
