How does your school inform you your child has had a head injury?

DS came home with an egg on his forehead today. He was collected from an after school club so didn't see teacher. No slip, no sticker so no idea what happened! Rather cross tbh. He did have first aid, a cold pack etc.

Presumably he told you whwt happened?

But yes,ni would have expected a slip or a sticker.

Eachpeachpearwherestheplum Mon 19-Nov-12 21:36:01

Yes but he is 4......enough said!

My children have been at 2 primaries and they send out a bump letter.

Phone call

They have a special form - we got one the other day after a 'tiara incident'... could see even the tiniest scratch so appears they are hyper-cautious here.

Head Letter!

peeriebear Mon 19-Nov-12 21:39:54

The Brown Envelope. Always with the same contents... Blah blah vague description and "cold compress applied" grin

MirandaWest Mon 19-Nov-12 21:40:41

We get an accident form for all injuries.

For DS (8) I would get a telephone call at the time, a letter, and he would have a sticker saying "I've bumped my head" so all staff would be aware.

At my DDs' junior school, the same, except no sticker. Not sure what the policy is now they are at senior schools, as it hasn't happened.

We get a slip at the end of the day. Obviously if serious they would call us when it happened though.

RatherBeOnThePiste Mon 19-Nov-12 21:43:01

In infants they had a sticker "I bumped my head today" hmm and I think a letter too. If it was slightly more of a bang then a phone call too.

Chubfuddler Mon 19-Nov-12 21:43:22

Bump sticker and letter.

If serious immediate phone call.

sausagesandwich34 Mon 19-Nov-12 21:44:15

bump note

apparently a wet paper towel fixes everything grin

Pancakeflipper Mon 19-Nov-12 21:45:03

Slip of paper and a sticker.

Though got a phone call for DS1 when he was in reception to warn me as the bump was huge and had instantly bruised.

CMOTDibbler Mon 19-Nov-12 21:46:20

We get a letter with a slip to return (handed to you if you pick up from class, sellotaped to their locker if late club), and a 'I bumped my head' sticker on the child.

Startail Mon 19-Nov-12 21:47:24

Wet paper towel and a note.

HoneyDragon Mon 19-Nov-12 21:47:30

Bump letter.

Apart from when Ds grazed his head so bad his eyebrow came off. A very teary reception teacher brought him out then grin

piprabbit Mon 19-Nov-12 21:49:46

We get a text saying what the problem is and to look out for a letter in the book bag.

Glittertwins Mon 19-Nov-12 21:49:49

We got 2 phone calls as well as a slip in the book bag. Scared the life out of me as I missed the call, they'd then called DH's mobile before I got back to my desk and called them back. Luckily it was nothing serious but this was standard procedure when they hit their head.

Eachpeachpearwherestheplum Mon 19-Nov-12 21:55:10

Ummm I thought as much. I have emailed the head and suggested he gets a system in place!

exoticfruits Mon 19-Nov-12 22:12:20

A red letter-I would be rich if I had a £1 for every one received!

KnittingChristmas Mon 19-Nov-12 22:14:54

Me too exotic! We get about two a week much to DS1's amusement grin!

exoticfruits Mon 19-Nov-12 22:16:52

I wish I had kept them for a count up! DS3 got the most.

School policy is to always ring about a head bump.

Takes up soooooooooooooooooo much time!!
