    Hi
    I teach a KS1 class and today I was told by one of the boys that he felt like he had hit his head but he hadn't. I took this to mean that he had a bit of a headache so I told him to have a drink of water and as it was nearly the end of the day he'd be going home soon so he'd be fine. I then had a phone call from his grandma asking what had happened. I told her what he had told me. She seemed fine with it but was wondering whether to take him to A&E just to check him out because he was pale. I'm now panicing that I should have done more! What do you think?
    Thanks, K

    Thanks for the replies.
    I spoke to the child's mother this morning and he had been to A&E because he was sick 4 times! She was very nice about it. I had explained what I was told and she thanked me for what I had done anyway!
    Seems I panic about things too much!
