At St Charles we have in place arrangements for supporting children and young people with pastoral, medical and social needs.
Parents need to contact the class teacher or school office if medication is recommended by Health Professionals to be taken during the school day.
On a day to day basis the First Aiders generally oversee the administration of any medicines.
The school has a policy regarding the administration and managing of medicines on the school site. Please see the policy for further information in the School Policies section.
As a staff we have regular training and updates of conditions and medication affecting individual children so that all staff are able to manage medical situations.
SECTION 48 Inspection Report, June 2013, states that;
“St Charles’ is an outstanding Catholic school. It is an inclusive community where each person is welcomed, affirmed and valued. The Catholic ethos permeates all aspects of school life and this ensures that the Catholic mission of the school is at the centre of all activities.
The school is at the heart of the community and the shared vision and mission of the school is constantly improving and developing.
Pupils contribute to the monitoring and evaluation of the school through the strong pupils’ forum and the family group sessions through which the children are encouraged to work towards finding ways of improving many aspects of school.
The Catholic character of the school is clearly evidenced through the many different activities which children, parents and parishioners share together, for example ‘Family Learning’ events during which the children work in family groups. During these events the whole school community experience the joy of participating in activities together.
There is a clear commitment to the pastoral care of all pupils, particularly those most in need, resulting in a happy, caring and welcoming community.
Collective Worship has a significant impact on the spiritual and moral development of pupils.”
