First Aid

First Aid

All school staff are trained in First Aid.

4 staff also have Senior First Aid accreditation. It is these staff that primarily support children with first aid issues.

When students have a minor injury in the yard, they are asked to talk to a yard duty teacher.  Yard duty teachers carry band-aids in their yard duty bags and so may ask students with a small cut or graze to wash the wound and then apply a bandaid.

If it is considered that this is an injury that requires the child to rest, the injury to be observed or if further treatment is required the yard duty teacher, will send the child to the first aid area. The first aid area is adjacent to the school's front office.

Students who are treated in the first aid area receive a yellow sticker. This sticker is aimed to inform parents of the incident and treatment the child has received. All treatment is also logged on the school's first aid records.

When a child is not well enough to stay at school, a parent or if not contactable an emergency contact person will be asked to collect the child from school. It is therefore important that parents keep all contact details up to date.

If the accident/injury is of concern, we exercise caution and will ring for an ambulance. In this situation, we ring the parents so they can come to school or if some distance away, a staff member will go with the child to the hospital until a parent can be with the child.
