Boarders are routinely registered with the School Doctor on arrival at Trinity. Weekly boarders may remain with their existing Doctor and access the school Doctor with a temporary registration if necessary.

Day pupils who become unwell and are unable to attend lessons will initially be cared for by the School Nurses, parents will be notified and are expected to collect their child from school. Boarders will be cared for in the Medical Centre and the School Doctor will be asked to visit if necessary. Parents/Guardians will be informed and updated regularly concerning their child's condition.

Parents are requested to inform the school of any infectious illness with regard to their child and to keep them away from school until the illness has resolved. If a child has sickness and/or diarrhoea it is necessary to have a period of at least 24 hours after the vomiting and diarrhoea has settled before returning to school. If several pupils have symptoms, 48 hours free of symptoms is required before returning

Medicines are administered in accordance with Trinity's Administration of Medicines in School Policy, which states that medicines, unless prescribed, should not be brought to school. Medication for specific medical conditions will be individually assessed.

Denshield for Schools" insurance is offered to pupils to use in dental emergencies. Boarders are, however, encouraged to remain with their existing dentist for routine care and to have check-ups during the school holidays. The School does offer the option of joining a private Dental Care Plan and the cost of this will be charged on your account. This Care Plan covers all aspects of dental care. Please complete the section of the Medical Form stating your wishes regarding dental care.

Sight testing, repairs and replacement glasses can be arranged through a local optician in Teignmouth.

Parents/Guardians are required to complete a Medical Form prior to their child's arrival, giving details of any medical history, the dates of childhood immunisations, and also information about sleeping, dietary requirements, dental care and any emotional needs.

Consent forms for treatment in school and for anaesthetic in the event of an emergency are also required. All medical information and consents are updated annually.
