Staying Safe

Schools are always very diligent when working with children who have had a bump to the head. We follow the recommended guidance from DENI, a summary of which is outlined below for your information.

CONCUSSION AWARENESS

 

SPOT THE SIGNS

If you or someone else has been hit on the head, you need to look out for signs like these:

  • A headache

  • Feeling dazed or confused

  • Feeling drowsy or sleepy

  • Feeling sick

  • Feeling irritable or “in a fog”

  • Having difficulty remembering things

  • Any other change in normal behaviour.

Concussion does not always involve losing consciousness; you must take any of these symptoms very seriously.

For more details, see the Pocket Concussion Recognition ToolTM.
