Welcome to

Alkborough Primary School

Medical Care

We have first aid trained staff throughout the school who are available during the day to attend to children who become ill or have an accident.

If children are ill, it is considered important for every effort to be made for a sick child to return home. Parents are asked to provide a daytime telephone number so that they can be contacted if necessary. If this is not possible, please provide a daytime telephone number for a relative or someone who can be called in an emergency.


All parent/carers are asked to complete an Individual Health Care Plan (IHCP) for their child if they have a medical condition. An IHCP  is an agreement between parents/carers, the school and healthcare professionals about what care a child needs and how it will be carried out.

A copy of Alkborough Primary Schools IHCP can be found here.


Administration of Medicines

Medicines can only be administered under certain circumstances, i.e. case of chronic or long-term illness, such as asthma, diabetes or epilepsy, and in cases where children are recovering from short-term illnesses and are well enough to return to school but are still taking medication.

It is preferable that parents should administer medicines. However, there are times when it may be difficult and the school, will arrange for the administration of medicine. In these rare circumstances you will need to fill in a medication form here or obtain a copy from the school office.


Medical Appointments

Children are not allowed to leave the premises during school hours without prior permission from the parent. If your child has an appointment during school hours, please let school know in advance. Parents should collect their child for such an appointment only at the school office.
