Harris Primary Academy Mayflower

Harris Primary Academy Mayflower is an outstanding academy based in Essex. We spoke to their office team about how they find using Medical Tracker across the school.


A member of the 54-school Harris Federation, Harris Primary Academy Mayflower is a larger than average primary school which caters for up to 1100 pupils from nursery to year six. A five-form entry school, the popular community school is the biggest primary free school in the country.


“Our old system involved so much paperwork! We used medical forms and would hand them out at the end of the day- our school is too big for that!” Harris Primary Academy Mayflower Office Team.


What problems does Medical Tracker solve?

  • Parents are informed of injuries, they love the simple communication. It puts their mind at ease
  • Incidents are recorded quickly; we use iPads to input the accidents. I have it open all day, and logging an incident takes less than a minute
  • No more paper slips! All of the communication is streamlined into one system. which, as such a large school, is a necessity


How is Medical Tracker used across the school?

Harris Primary Academy Mayflower wanted to move from a paper-based system to an online accident book to save staff time and to make their first aid provision more efficient. They now save countless hours with online parent communication, consistency of incident recording (including the administration of medication) and the uniform approach across the school.

As Medical Tracker is DfE, HSE, and Riddor first aid compliant, the information that must be provided for each incident ensures an accurate recording.

Harris Primary Academy Mayflower uses the reporting feature to identify how many bumped heads have been logged each month to see any increasing trends during playtimes and lunchtimes.


What impact has Medical Tracker had on first aid provision?

  • Saved staff time by automating parent communications.
  • Removed the need for paper medical slips.
  • Made recording an incident quick and easy.

Parents receive instant notifications when incidents or medication administration are recorded. A full communication audit trail is saved. This helps parents feel that their child is well looked after at school- great for Ofsted!

It's a really simple solution to a complex problem. I can't think why no one has come up with it before now. It’s also easy to get support and the system is being developed all the time.
