Sport and PE

We are aware that participation in sport brings with it a risk of injury and we would like to reassure parents that the following provision is available in the event a student does become injured: Health Centre: Our onsite Health Centre provides care to students who are unwell or injured. Medical practitioners: A doctor, paramedic or qualified first aider is present pitch-side for all contact sports fixtures. They are easily identifiable in Hi-Vis jackets. Physiotherapist: Our school physiotherapist can provide students with injury triage assessment on a Monday, free of charge. Each member of staff can put forward a student for assessment, so if your child has sustained an injury (especially if it is not obvious), please make sure they inform a member of staff. Further treatment: Following this initial assessment, your child may be advised to return to training; given a short-term action plan; or be referred for further treatment. Physiotherapy treatment is offered on a Wednesday afternoon and can be booked through the School physiotherapist. This is charged to students at a reduced rate. Further information is available in the School Health Centre or in the physio suite within the Sports Centre. Medical Provision Page 05
