This document should be completed for any injury of a child who has to seek medical advice from either a GP or the hospital. This is so school can keep your child safe and ensure we have risk assessed the situation properly.
No child will be permitted into school without this form and it MUST be signed and stamped by a medical professional. We are not medically trained past basic first aid and therefore staff can not independently assess the risk of exasperating an injury.
This is in line with advice obtained by the Health and Safety Lead for Schools – Stephen Bell.
