Yesterday, one of the children in my class collapsed during assembly (the chn were standing up at the time) then had a full blown fit. I happened to be facing the right way at the right time, and was there within seconds. After his convulsions had stopped, he lay rigid on his back with his eyes wide open for at least 20 seconds, and then came out of it, completely confused as to why he wasn't still standing up. I called one of the other teachers towards us, but he was fairly indifferent and didn't seem to think it was a big deal. I was an absolute wreck about it, but obviously with 200 kids all keen to know what's happened, and a very confused little boy, I had to act like I was in total control. This happened five minutes before the end of school, so I didn't call home- rather I got him to take his jumper off and sat him on the classroom carpet (incase he fitted again and fell). After school, I explained to his mum what had happened, but she didn't seem too concerned. Later, I spoke to the SENCO who rang home and advised to take him to the GP. Out of every member of staff I spoke to about it, she was the only one who seemed bothered or concerned about it. Everyone else just shrugged their shoulders. I feel really unsuported by my colleagues and by my school- the more I think about it, the more I am concerned that my school is not properly protecting its children or its staff- we are not adequately trainedto cope with these incidents. I am a fairly inexperienced and young teacher, and it is just by chance that I know bits and bobs about fits and how to manage them. I don't know what to do next. Obviously, I am not medically trained so I can't diagnose him or medicate him, but I feel pretty shaken up by the whole incident, and I feel annoyed that I haven't been properly supported by my staff. No-one asked me how I was. So what is my next move? What can I do?
