Head Injury Information

Holbrook Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and as part of our continued first aid procedure development, we will be trialling a new system in school to ensure that all staff and parents are aware of children who bump their head during the school day.

Any child who bumps their head will wear a RED wristband (similar to those used at swimming pools). This will be marked with the time/date and location of the injury and will also be initialled by the first aider on duty. They will also be given an orange slip which will have more details of the incident and how it was treated.

We hope that this system will be more visual to staff during the school day, parents/carers collecting at the end of the day and enable better monitoring of pupils. Please keep a look out for these wristbands on your child when you collect them from school.
