Useful Reminders

Medical information and inhalers

There will be a form coming home for you to fill in about any medical information about your child e.g. asthma, allergies, eczema etc. Please complete and return to school asap. The school nurse has delivered asthma training to teaching staff. The latest advice is that if your child needs an inhaler in school then we should have 2 for them. They should be provided by your GP. Each inhaler should be in its original box with the pharmacy sticker clearly evident. Inhalers are kept in class for easy access.

Telephone Numbers

Please can you let the school office know if you have changed your mobile number – ideally the office should have 2 contacts for if your child is ill. If you did not receive text messages from school then we do not have the most up to date number for you.


If your child has vomiting or diarrhoea they should be kept away from school for 24 hours AFTER the last episode of either occurring. It is 48 hours if your child suffers from both conditions.


In the case of illness please contact the school office to report your child’s absence. Thank you. 472273.

Holidays – as you know all requests should be made in writing and before the holiday is taken. No holidays in September will be authorised whatever the circumstances. Holidays taken without any requests made will automatically be made subject to a Fixed Penalty Notice.


If any parent/carer has any concerns for the safety of a child, either in school or out, please contact Mrs Grant (safeguarding lead teacher for St. Mary’s) or ring duty and assessment direct on 01924 326097 or NSPCC 08088005000. All enquiries/information is confidential.
