East Riding Health Visitors and School Nurses (ISPHNS) Facebook Page
The purpose of the Facebook page is to provide children, young people and families with reliable and accessible health information. The page contains important information for parents of young infants and is also aimed at children and young people.
Accidents at School
Children inevitably have minor bumps and scrapes during playtimes, which are easily dealt with. In the event of a head infjury we will try to contact you (so it is important that the school is informed of any changes in your emergency contact telephone numbers.). We have several paediatric first aiders on staff; Mrs Smith and Mrs Mouland.
If your child has a head injury we will send home a red letter. If your child has another injury at school that staff feel needs monitoring you will receive a blue letter.

Medicine in school
We prefer not to have medicines in school. However, if your child needs to take medicine either please make arrangements for an adult to come into school and administer it. Or school staff can administer prescribed medicine provided an authorisation form has been completed. These forms are available from the school office. We are not allowed to administer non-prescribed medication. Children's medical conditions are recorded on the register. If appropriate, please ask for a form so that we can make the necessary arrangements for your child.
The school works closely with the East Riding Asthma nurse and follows the Asthma protocols provided. If your child has an unusual asthma protocol we will ask for details to be confirmed in writing by a medical professional. Children's inhalers are readily available for them to use.
