Head Bumps!

Bumped Heads

When a child bumps their head during the day we have historically sent letters home because it is important that you are aware of what has happened and can watch your child to check that no delayed signs of concussion develop. These letters were often lost or weren't seen by parents, so now children will come home wearing red bands if they have bumped their heads. These bands clearly state ‘I bumped my head today.’



 If your child is wearing a band please keep an eye on them for the next 3 to 4 days and seek medical advice if you notice any of the following:


  • Your child is sick more than twice in a day
  • Your child complains of a persistent headache after taking children’s paracetamol
  • Your child has a convulsion
  • Your child is unusually sleepy or difficult to wake up
  • Your child is not their usual self in any way or has a change in behaviour


Please remove the bands once you have seen them. They can easily be removed with scissors.
