At STFS we pride ourselves on the care we provide to students with medical conditions. It's so important that parents and students have confidence in us to provide effective support and that the students themselves feel safe.
Managing a medical condition while attending school and maintaining studies can be a difficult balance for some students. At STFS they are fully supported, so they can enjoy the same opportunities as any other student and access all aspects of their education.
Our full-time Medical Officer or First Aid Team is always available to provide assistance to students if required, and can implement a variety of measures to ensure medical conditions have as minimal impact on school life as possible.
There are several forms on this page that you can use to keep us informed of any new or changing medical conditions, or give consent for medications. Completion of any one of these forms will prompt a call or email from our Medical Officer. However, if there is anything you would like to discuss, please phone the office on 01296 711853 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting.
If your child has a new medical condition, you'd like to update us about an existing one or your child is new to the school. Please complete this form as fully as possible and our Medical Officer will contact you to discuss your child's needs if required/requested.

All medicines are kept in a secure cupboard and administered by our Medical Officer when required. For safety reasons, students are NOT permitted to keep medicines on their person at school.
