First Aid Policy
Oxford School of English aims to ensure that in the event of any illness, accident or injury, adequate, safe and effective First Aid is provided for every student, member of staff and visitor.
All accidents, no matter how minor or major must be reported to a First Aider immediately. First Aid will only be administered by a trained First Aider. Following each incident, no matter how minor, the relevant First Aider will complete the relevant section of the Accident Report Book (stored in the filing cabinet behind Reception) and/or an Incident Report Form (stored on the Server under Health-and-Safety). The personal information recorded in the Accident Report Book must be removed and saved in the First Aid folder, which is kept in the store room.
Written consent is obtained in advance allowing our First Aiders to administer First Aid to under-18s. This consent is obtained by means of our Parental Consent Form, which we ask all parents/guardians of under-18s to sign before the student starts the course.

Appropriate signs are displayed throughout the school listing the First Aid procedures, including the names and location of each First Aider and the location of the First Aid box.
