Your Child’s Health


Important letter from the School Nurse Important Measles Letter



If your child has asthma, we will need a named inhaler and spacer (if required) to be left in school at all times. Please order spares of each now so you have it in time for your child starting school.  We will also need instructions from the doctor about dosage. This will either be on the named label on the inhaler box, or on your child’s asthma plan. If you child does not already have a plan please print the attached and complete it with the doctor/asthma nurse the next time your child has an appointment. Bring the completed form into school and we will keep a copy to help support your child in school.
