Medicines at School

If your child has a medical condition which requires special attention or medication e.g. asthma, please notify the school office as soon as possible.

If it is absolutely necessary for your child to take medicine at school it is essential that an adult personally hands in the medicine at the school office and signs the official medication form.  The medicine must be in its box, with a clear expiry date and named prescirption sticker on it. PLEASE READ the Administering Medicines Policy.    You will need to complete a Parental Agreement to Medicine form BEFORE a member of the medical team is able to administer medicine.  These can be found in the policies section of the website.

Please note that only medicine prescribed for Asthma, Diabetes, Epilepsy and Allergies will be administered in school.

If your child is prescribed antibiotics please ask the GP for a dosage that can be administered wherever possible outside school hours – before school, straight after school and at bed-time.

It is essential that children do not carry medicine themselves or store it in school. Class teachers are unable to assist children – designated adults only may deal with medicine. 

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you have a concern about the health and well-being of your child.
