Pastoral Care

At Bromley Heath Infant School it is central to our beliefs that academic, creative and social excellence is only attainable when we feel secure, happy and valued. It is therefore our priority that all pupils are supported and nurtured throughout their time with us.

The relationship your child builds with their class teacher and teaching assistant will be a special one, and they will be the first person to share any exciting news or concerns you or your child may have.

We also have a parent link worker, Mrs Julie Bettesworth, who is able to provide advice, and signpost you to support groups and agencies, should you or your child require it.

Caring for your child

We have two trained paediatric first aiders and a fantastic team of lunch-break supervisors who deal with minor accidents. But, as we encourage an active lifestyle, there is inevitably the odd scrape or bump. These will be dealt with in a calm and caring manner by our team.

If there is a more serious accident, we will make every effort to contact you. However, if we are unable to contact you immediately we will take any action we feel necessary; for example taking your child to the doctor or hospital.

Occasionally children become ill at school; if this happens parents will be contacted to arrange for them to go home. In cases of sickness and diarrhoea we ask you to keep your child home for 48hours after the last bout of sickness, even if they seem better, as this is very infectious.

It is essential that parents keep their contact details up to date in case of accident or illness.

Medicines

We endeavour to support children with long term medical needs, and if necessary, will administer prescribed medication upon the completion of an ‘administration of medication form’(please provide a link to the form); although we ask parents to try and organise medications outside of the school day, wherever possible.

Children with Asthma will have access to their inhalers throughout the day but it is parent’s responsibility to ensure that the inhalers are in date.

Short term medicines, to complete a course of treatment, will also be administered on completion of the above form.

All medicines to be administered in school must be delivered to the school office in their original bottle or container with the child’s name, dosage and be in date. Non prescribed medicines will not be administered in school.
