Medical & First Aid

The Academy will supply adequate first aid and medical assistance for students, staff and visitors to the Academy.  Our team is made up of first aiders and they are not medically qualified to diagnose illnesses.

Students are not allowed to carry any medication, unless cleared by the Lead First Aider, eg inhalers.  If a student requires medication during the Academy day a medical form should be fully completed and handed in with the medication to First Aid/Reception, to be kept secure.  

If your child needs to have any type of medication kept in school, (please note all medicines must be kept locked away and not kept in students bags,) please complete a medical form which can be downloaded here. Alternatively a form can be obtained from reception.

First Aid

The First Aid room is open at break and lunchtime only.  Students are not allowed out of lessons unless it is an emergency illness or injury.  A headache, stomach-ache, feeling sick or minor injuries such as papercuts, do not require emergency first aid and students will be returned to lessons until  First Aid is open.

Please remember, It is school policy that students are not allowed to use their mobile phones in school.  Therefore, in the event of illness or injury, parents and carers will be contacted, in the first instance, by the First Aider.

Medical Conditions & First Aid Policy


Contact details must be kept up to date at all times, it may slow down treatment if we are unable to contact you in an emergency.
