Pastoral Care

At Deansbrook Junior School, your child's welfare is very important to all members of staff.

Our aim is to provide your child with a safe and healthy learning environment to enable them to grow and develop.

Many of our staff are First Aid trained and there is a first aid kit in every classroom. We also have a welfare room with first aid facilities to deal with minor injuries.  There are additional staff members who are based within the Welfare room and the playground during break-times and other key times of the day.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office or your child's class teacher if you have concerns about your child's welfare in school and we will make arrangements for you to discuss your concerns with the most appropriate member of staff.

Illness/Injury during the school day

Please do not send your child to school if he/she seems unwell. In the event of illness at school we shall contact you immediately- it is vital that your contact details are always up-to-date. We will do all we can to comfort your child until they are collected.

If your child sustains a minor injury whilst at school we will administer first aid. If your child has a head injury we will always provide you with a letter, however should we have any concerns we will contact you immediately. All injuries are recorded.


If your child needs medicine during the school day we require you to complete a form at the school office. We can only administer medicines that are prescribed by your doctor.


If your child suffers from allergies please let us know.
