Medical care and illness

If your child is sick or unable to attend Junior Junction for any reason, we ask that you notify the Office as soon as possible.

Due to the risk of infecting other children and teachers we do not provide care for sick children. If your child has any of the following symptoms: high fever, inflamed throat, eye discharge, unidentified rash, vomiting or diarrhoea you must keep your child at home, unless medical clearance has been given.

If your child becomes ill whilst at Junior Junction the parent/guardian will be notified. If medical advice is required we will seek it immediately. 

In the event of an accident or emergency, the parent (or person named as emergency contact) will be contacted. If the accident or emergency requires a Doctor the child will be taken to Junior Junction's Doctor or the nearest A&E Clinic.

All head injuries no matter how minor will be recorded and reported immediately to the parent/guardian.

First Aid reports

All First Aid and other incidents are recorded when they occur and written up in a Carbon Copy Book. A copy is put in the child’s bag for further reference.

Medication

A “Medicine To Be Administered” folder is kept on the Reception Desk. We request that the parent/guardian fill in the details each day as required (no medicine can be administered without consent from a parent/guardian).

Immunisation

We are required to keep an up-to-date list of all children at the Centre and their immunisation status. Please remember to bring your Well Child Book and a copy of your immunisation certificate with you when you enrol your child at the Centre. If you child is not immunised a letter confirming this needs to be attached to your enrolment form. In the case of an outbreak of such a disease your child will be asked to stay away from the Centre for the duration of the outbreak.
