Asthma

Introduction

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
  • Ensure 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

Asthma Policy

Our asthma policy and guidance sets out the processes we use in school to keep children with asthma safe and well. It is important to note that keeping children with asthma safe and well is a joint responsibility between the school, the family and where children are sufficiently mature, the child.

Please click the image opposite to open the asthma policy. Should you have any questions, queries or concerns please don't hesitate to contact the school medical team:

Asthma Symptoms and Response

The set of posters opposite are used within the Chesswood Junior School community to support our understanding of symptoms, their severity and our expected response. Please click on the iage to open in a new page.

 

NHS Asthma Support

We have included the NHS Asthma guidance to support families in their management of asthma. This guidance should be used in conjunction with asthma clinic guidance and in line with school policy.

Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties.

It affects people of all ages and often starts in childhood, although it can also develop for the first time in adults.

There's currently no cure, but there are simple treatments that can help keep the symptoms under control so it does not have a big impact on your life.
