As a school, we are working with the NHS on improving our care for children with asthma for the ‘Asthma Friendly Schools Accreditation Award’. Please read through our Asthma Friendly School policy.
We have two wonderful asthma ambassadors who work with our Eco-Warriors on raising awareness of asthma in school.
School Asthma Champion: Miss O’Hare
If your child has a diagnosis of asthma, we request the following paperwork.
We request all children are provided with a spacer. If your child does not have a spacer or has not had an asthma review within 12 months, please contact your GP practice. Additionally, if you have an Asthma Action Plan from your GP which school have not yet received a copy of, please can you hand this into the school office for us to photocopy.
We have an emergency relief inhaler that can be used for any child within school who has a diagnosis of asthma or has been prescribed with a reliver inhaler. You are able to opt out of this in the asthma paperwork if you wish.
Our staff in school have recently completed online training to upskill our asthma knowledge. If you would like to access the free training (certificate provided at the end of the course – takes approx. 30 mins) please click on this link – Supporting Children’s Health and Young People with Asthma (educationforhealth.org)
If you are interested in being a parent/carer Asthma Champion for our school, please contact Miss O’Hare!
