This weekend all of the staff associated with, and a group of students participating in, the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Scheme, will also be attending FMP for Basic First Aid training as part of their skills training and in advance of the practice and final award expeditions. In a couple of weeks’ time, we will be sending another group of overseas teachers to attend this course, so that very soon we will have about 75% of our teaching staff with at least internationally recognised basic First Aid Training. It is an excellent base on which to build for day and residential trips but more importantly the day to day welfare of your children.
Further work is on-going in auditing the medical practices in school relating to care, reporting, and issues relating to the use of medication. The practice is already good but we want it to be even better. There may be some improvements to medical practice here at school, and we will be writing to inform parents of these in due course.
As ever, our commitment is to you and to the welfare and safety of your children.
