Asthma

At Chesswood Junior School we:

  • Recognise that asthma is a widespread, serious but controllable condition and the school welcomes all pupils with asthma
  • Ensure that pupils with asthma can and do participate fully in all aspects of school life, including art, PE, science, educational visits and out of hours activities
  • Recognise that pupils with asthma need immediate access to reliever inhalers at all times
  • Keep a record of all pupils with asthma and the medicines they take
  • Endeavour that the whole school environment, including the physical, social, sporting and educational environment, is favourable to pupils with asthma

Ensures that all staff (including supply teachers and support staff) who have pupils with asthma in their care, know who those pupils are and know the school’s procedure to follow in the event of an asthma attack
