Health Information

Whilst every encouragement should be given to children to attend school, a child who is clearly unwell, infectious or contagious should not be sent into school.

It is important that you inform us of any health problems affecting your child. 

Medication: Ultimately parents are responsible for the administration of any medication to their children. Should your child require prescription medication in the middle of the school day, parents are requested to either visit school to administer the medicine or complete an 'administering medication' request form. Medication must be fully labelled to indicate name, dosage, and frequency of administration as well as the name and telephone number of the doctor who prescribed it. Please note that there is no legal duty which requires schools to administer medicines to pupils or supervise a child administering it.

For guidance on infections, please see the poster entitled “Guidance on Infection Control in Schools and other Child care settings” via the link below

Emergency Contacts

At Stoke Goldington Church of England First School we take great care of your child and especially when they become ill at school. Please ensure that we always have up-to-date contact numbers so that parents or designated carers can be contacted in an emergency.  You can inform the school office of any changes via office@stokegoldington.milton-keynes.sch.uk

or by telephoning the school office on 01908 551253
