I am new to all this but i'll try my best not to rabble on too much
My 6Yr old son came home yesterday saying his dinner lady gave him his inhaler which i thought was good as he knows when he needs it. i later looked in his book bag for a note or little letter saying that he has had his inhaler at school and had this many puffs.....I found none.
This morning i paid his teacher a visit before school and asked if there was a record of him having his inhaler......... No we just give it to him as and when he needs it..... was the reply i got. i started getting a little annoyed and said how am i suppose to keep track of how he is doing when i dont know whats been happening at school? he said we've not been told to write anything down. (oh and apparently its not the first time either!)
i later on rang the head teacher and he came up with the same excuse.....its not our policy to record when anyone has their inhalers but if i wanted he would talk to his teachers and get them to write it down for me.
Is this just me being picky or is it common sense that you let the parent know somehow if they have had medication?
i get a note or phone call if my son falls over in the playground why is it so different for them to do the same when its his breathing thats affected?
is there anyone who has been in this situation before and know how they can help me get though to the school?
