hi new to this site
my son has had asthma since he was four months old, and is now twelve.
He had a asthma attack at school last week, while doing PE, he insists on trying his best and really giving all sports a good go, but tends to end up with him struggling for breath at the end. I keep telling him not to try so hard, but he never listens.
Anyway the problem is, while having the asthma attack he was took to the sick room, and left on his own with someone popping in to check on him now and again.
He eventually phoned me on his mobile to come and get him. When I got to the school I was furious and asked why the school hadn't phoned me themselves. They said they thought he was ok and were waiting to see if he got any worse, they said they were popping in to see him every ten mins but he said they only checked on him once, in a hour.
Does anyone know if schools are supposed to have a policy about asthma telling them what to do if a child suffers an attack.
Common sense should have told them not to leave a child alone at all while having a asthma attack. lucky enough he was ok after resting at home and using his inhalers. But for future use I need to know he is going to be ok while at school.
