Carysfort National School - Health & Safety
Children who are ill should not be sent to school. Parents are asked that the school be made aware of any physical disability or allergies which their children might have.
In the event of a child being absent through illness or any other reason, the class teacher should be informed by note on the pupil's return to school. If it is anticipated that the absence will be of a lengthy duration, the class teacher should be informed by note as soon as possible.
When it is necessary for a pupil to leave school early e.g. to attend an appointment, a note must be sent to the class teacher.
Requests to remain indoors at break times should only be made in exceptional circumstances (limbs in plaster, recovering from or awaiting surgery).
In the interests of safety, parents' cars are not permitted into the school grounds. Parents are asked to refrain from parking at the school entrance and to be aware of the busy streets surrounding the school. Children should be encouraged to obey the Lollipop personnel when crossing roads. Parents are asked to drive extremely slowly and carefully on the roads close to the school and to refrain from blocking the driveways of residences close to the school.
Accidents occur despite supervision. Minor accidents are treated at school. In the event of a more serious accident or child becoming ill, every possible effort will be made to contact the pupil's parents or guardian. It is imperative that the school has the most up to date home, work and mobile numbers of parents. Please also notify the school of any changes to address or contact details.
