St. Gabriel's Catholic Primary School

Pre-School Health and Safety

Clothes

Could you please send your child with a bag clearly named, containing a change of clothes in case of accidents, and pumps or trainers only for P.E., which we will keep in the pre-school. If your child wears nappies we will need you to provide nappies and wet wipes.

We will let you know the day for P.E. as we use the main school hall.

Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

May we request that your child comes to pre-school in suitable clothing to promote self-help skills, clothes with easy fastenings.

We provide aprons for craft sessions but please bear in mind that paint and glue can still find a way onto their clothing.

We have our own St. Gabriel’s sweatshirts and t-shirts available for purchase from Mapac – go to www.mapac.com click ‘Education’, click ‘are you a parent’ and the ‘find my school’ (St. Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School – unique online shop).

Jewellery

For Health and safety reasons only stud earrings are allowed in Pre-School.

 

Collecting of children

Children will not be allowed to go home with anyone other than the designated person, unless we are informed otherwise. No one under the age of 16 years old will be allowed to collect your child.

 

Absences

Please inform pre-school if your child is unable to attend on a particular day for any reason. If we do not hear from you, we will make first day contact – courtesy telephone call to enquire about your child not attending the session. Also could you provide us with your holiday dates if they are to be taken in term time.

 

Fire Drill

We have a fire drill at least once a term so that the children become familiar with the procedure should the need arise.

 

Illness

Parents are asked to keep their children at home if they have any infection, and to inform a member of staff as to the nature of the infection. We can then alert other parents when necessary and make careful observations of any child who seems unwell.  N.B. if your child is sick (vomits) or suffers from diarrhoea please keep them at home for 48 hours until it has cleared up.

 

Medicine

As a general rule, medicine will not be administered in Pre-School.

In exceptional circumstances we will administer medicine if they are prescribed by a doctor/dentist/nurse and provided parents have signed a medication form. This will need to be discussed with Mrs. Miller or Mrs Konopka before hand.

 

First Aid

There is a first aid box in main room, the contents of which are checked frequently and replaced if necessary.

A record is maintained, signed by the parent, of any accidents/incidents or accidents that happened at home. This is a mandatory requirement in our regulations.

 

Emergencies

If your child is taken ill in pre-school, or if an accident occurs, the parent or carer will be notified immediately. If you are not at home we shall contact the person named on your child’s information form.

 

Outings

You will need to fill in a permission slip when your child goes on pre-school outings.

These outings will always be well supervised and you will be informed well in advance of the intended visit.

 

Parking around school

Parents are asked not to bring cars onto the school premises at the beginning or the end of the sessions. We ask you to park with consideration for our neighbours. Belgrave Social Club car park can be used for parental parking. There is a gate which leads to a footpath next to the school. (Parents will need to purchase a £10.00 car park pass from the Pre-school)
