Unfortunately, children do have accidents sometimes or become unwell whilst they are at school and we might need to call you. It can add to your child’s distress if we are unable to contact you, so please ensure that the school office has up to date contact telephone numbers for you and other adults named on your child’s data sheet. Please tell us straightaway if any of the contact details change. Please be assured that staff will immediately assess whether an accident necessitates a visit to the hospital. Calling an ambulance is a very rare occurrence, but the needs of the child will always come first.
