Health, Illness & Accidents
In the event of an accident, a First Aider is always in attendance and will be responsible for deciding on appropriate action. Should your child need hospital treatment an ambulance will be called and a parent/carer contacted.
A member of our team will remain with the child and will consent to medical treatment so long as the Emergency Medical Treatment Form in this pack has been completed and signed. Should a child become ill during a session their parent/carer will be contacted and asked to collect their child.
Children should then remain at home for at least 24 hours. Wherever possible, medication should be taken at home. If it is necessary to take medication during sessions an Administering Medications Form must be completed and signed. Our team members may refuse to administer medication that has not been prescribed by a GP.
