Medical advice and forms
Informing School of Minor Illness
If your child is absent due to a minor illness you must contact the school to inform them of the reason for the absence and how long you expect them to be absent. It is helpful if you let the school know the nature of the illness to help prevent it being spread to others in school. On your child’s return to school you should inform them of their return and confirm the reason for the absence. Medical evidence may be requested to support your child’s absence. For example an appointment card/letter, medication or prescription etc. This does not equate to a doctor’s letter.For further advice on common childhood illnesses, limiting the spread of an illness and treatment please refer to the latest guidance from Herts:
The administration of medication at school
In the event of a child being prescribed a medication, parents are requested to complete a medication form granting permission to staff to ensure and administer this medication. Any medication of this nature should be brought to the school office along with a completed form (which can be found via the following link.
St. Michael’s is an inclusive community that aims to support and welcome pupils with medical conditions. We aim to provide all pupils with all medical conditions the same opportunities as others at school (both school based and out-of-school).
Please see our Medical Conditions policy for further detail:
Pre-existing Injuries Form
We do ask all parents to complete a pre-existing injuries form should their child present at school with significant bruising or injuries to enable us to help safeguard the children.
