Medical

It is our school policy to promote a safe and supportive environment for all students. Our pastoral care processes are carefully designed and reviewed regularly to provide support and care for all students. Support staff and selected academic staff have regular first aid training. We have a designated Clinic in the school which can be accessed by students as needed for first aid treatment. 

As a school we promote good health to our students and have very clear guidelines on when a child should not come to school due to illness. We know that young children are often in close proximity to each other so please be reassured that we are very conscientious of our students’ health and do all we can to reduce the risk of illnesses spreading. 

If a student becomes unwell during the school day or sustains an injury, teachers bring students into the Clinic. Clinic staff will carry out any necessary first aid and then parents will be contacted if the child requires further medical attention from a doctor or hospital. In the case of a severe injury to their head or another serious condition, parents will be contacted immediately. 

The AQI is an index for measuring daily air quality. It tells how clean or unhealthy the air is, and what associated health effects might be of concern. We have a whole campus automatic public warning system which alerts the community whenever AQI reaches a reading of 180 or above. The School Clinic will also communicate with all staff whenever a level of 180 is reached to ensure all pupils and staff remain indoors. The entire School benefits from the air purification system so that the quality of air for all people on campus indoors is excellent. This has been modified to take into account the increased sensitivity to pollution in younger children.

At Harrow we pride ourselves on the very high levels of care that we provide to each and every one of our students.
