Reading in the Dail Mail this morning about a school's refusal to put a plaster on a 9 rear old girls cut (sorry no link). The little girl concerned had cut her finger, the school tried to clean it up but stopped short of putting a plaster on it citing "a possible allergic reaction" to the plaster. Apparently the school was following local council guidlines but the council refute this saying the guidelines are merely "guidelines" ie not to be taken word for word. The girls mother had to come and put a plaster on her daughters finger. Personally I think it is a pretty sad state of affairs.
