I would like to know if there are any policies that support a child with asthma at school regarding where to be kept there Ventolin and Spacer.
My daughter just turned up 6 and is at year 1. She is asthmatic and winter is a dificult time for her. The headmistress decided without any notice to remove my child Ventolin and spacer from her classroom to her OFFICE that is far from where she is at school and came to tell me that was too much for her school staff to take over once she was in need of Ventolin in the classroom at my request - WHAT IS NOT THE CASE, THE SCHOOL HAS A LETTER FORM MY DAUGHTER GP AND ASTHMA NURSE DESCRIBING HOW MANY PUFFS AND WHEN SHE NEEDS IT.
As well one of the member staff has describe Ventolin as a STEROID what did scared me and is making very worried about her time at school.
If ASTHMA UK has any policies sugestions for schools I would be gratefull to be informed and how to get it, PLEASE!!
Was a very odd decision from head and she said that they want us to TRUST THE SCHOOL - HOW?
My little girl has had a ventolin not given when she has told them has chest was tight and that she needed the inhaller. Instead they gave a sip of water and not the Ventolin. My little girl came home that day and had an astham attack started close to get back home.
I feel sorry for all the children who suffers with asthma and are going through situations like this in this country. It is painfull the fact that the staff from school do not have any TRAINNING regarding ASTHMA.
WOULD BE WONDERFULL IF WE COULD SEE AN OFFER OF TRAINNING FOR THE SCHOOLS STAFF IN ENGLAND.
Please, any help regarding to this situation would be welcome.
