At Birkdale Senior School we have a designated medical room with facilities for both boys and girls.
Two matrons / administrators provide cover throughout the school working day from 8.30am - 4.30pm.
They are trained and qualified to administer first aid (First Aid at Work, HSE approved) and deal with accidents and emergencies, or to help if someone is taken ill.
Where pupils are required to take medication this will be supervised by matron, with parental consent and in accordance with a doctor’s prescription.
In addition to this there are 2 sick bays at Castle Dyke to cater for need within the Games programme.
