Welfare Officer

Mrs J Melloy is the Welfare Officer at Garlinge Primary School and Nursery who leads an extensive team of qualified first aiders and works closely with some of our more vulnerable children and supports families whose children may have complex medical needs. 

If you have any concerns regarding the wellbeing of your child contact Mrs Melloy on 01843 221877 (option 1 and then option 2), email at or via Weduc.

Medical Matters

If your child is not well enough to attend school, please report the absence before 09:30am. You can leave a message with the school office by ring 01843 221877 and pressing option 1. Absence can also be reported via Weduc.

Always notify the school immediately of any change to your contact details in case of emergency.

If your child has a medical condition a Care Plan will need to be put in place. The purpose of a care plan is to ensure we can meet your child's medical needs whilst they attend school.

All children with medical conditions are identified to relevant staff and class teachers are provided with a copy of any Care Plans.

Only medication that is prescribed by a GP can be administered by a member of staff. A Request to Administer Medication form will need to be completed. Please ensure you do not bring in any medication to school that is not prescribed by a GP. For more information please see our Administration of Medicines Policy.

Medical Appointments

When it not possible to make a medical appointment outside of school hours, please inform the school office in advance and provide evidence of the appointment. When you collect or return your child to/from school you will be required to sign him/her In or Out in the relevant folders outside the school office in the main entrance.
