Confidential Health and Support Questionnaire

Confidential Health Questionnaire

The information requested in this form is intended to help in the School's dealings with the pupil, and correspondence with parents. The information will be held on computer, but will be treated in strict confidence.

  • Confidential Health Questionnaire

    This medical questionnaire must be completed in full prior to start date. In order to safeguard all our students please note: Students are not allowed to carry any medication, homely, herbal or prescribed medication in school or the house. The Health Centre is easily accessible to all students, during term time and carries a wide range of homely remedies for symptomatic relief of most minor ailments. Therefore, there is no need for students to bring anything into school. If found they will be confiscated and destroyed. Students are permitted to self-administer medications; however, in all cases students must undergo a risk assessment by the Health Centre staff.
  • For the safety of Day and Boarding students

    We stock a range of homely remedies to support students when they feel unwell and so parents do not need to supply these. All medication will be given age appropriate. Please can you check the list below and consent that you are happy that these can be administered to your daughter or son by the Health Centre or House Parents when appropriate. If this section is not completed we will be unable to administer these to your son or daughter without seeking your permission.
  • Immunisation history

    Please fill in the dates as accurately as you can or request and attach a print out from your GP: If we do not have the dates, we cannot continue their childhood immunisations when they are due.
  • Immunisation and booster information

    Somerset Saint provide all school vaccinations or boosters for pupils during their time at Sexeys School. A consent form will be sent by email from Somerset SAINT and should be returned to them direct. Any questions should be sent to them direct. Sexey’s School provides the use of their hall for the vaccinations, but it is an external nurse team that comes into school to administer the vaccinations or boosters. Travel vaccines for Boarders can be arranged either through the G.P. surgery or a private clinic depending on which type of vaccination is required. All boarding students will be registered with Bruton Surgery, Patwell Lane, Bruton, so medical help is readily available while your child is with us. Should your child need to see your own local GP during the holidays or exeat weekends, then could you please state when you see the doctor that they are registered at Bruton surgery, and should only be seen as a “Temporary Resident”. In doing so, this will provide continuity of care, especially if your child is on regular medication or needs to be seen in an emergency.
