Hi there, my dd who is 4 and in reception came home today and said she was crying at school because she fell over, hit her head on the playground and had to be taken to first aid. Apparently the member of staff there (who she didn't know) put something cold on it and asked her name and which class she was in.
When I went to pick her up this afternoon, I spoke directly to her teacher to ask her something else and nothing was mentioned about this fall.
Am I being PFB to expect someone to have said something to me about this incident? She seems ok tonight although wouldn't eat her dinner and said she had tummy ache although I think this is probably unrelated and I can't see any bumps or bruises...but I still personally think I should have been told? What do you think?
At my DS school if you bump your head you get a call from the school or/and you get a note in the book bag saying: your DC had a bump, please take him/her to the hospital if she is sick, dizzy etc. So, I guess, your school should have informed you about it too. You might not see anything (no bruises, no bumps) but the head injuries can be very dangerous. You can ask them to kindly inform you next time your child has an injury. Hope she does not.
Yes that's what I thought....now I know she can be a drama queen so she may have been making a mountain out of a molehill...but if it was her head, I think I should have been told regardless. Think maybe I should ask on Monday...although it seems pretty pointless by then...but perhaps that will prompt them to tell me should it happen again. Don't want to seem OTT about it though.
