Administration of Medicine

Children should not be in school if they are ill. Should your child require medication please try and arrange for doses to be taken before or after school, or during lunchtime by a parent or authorised person.

For Health and Safety reasons, staff can only administer prescribed medicines after parents/carers have completed an Authorisation for the Administration of Medication form (except inhalers).

If your child requires preventative medicines, such as for asthma or diabetes, or medicated cough sweets, then these may be brought into school. They should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and handed to the class teacher. The school should be informed of any allergies the child may have (eg. nuts, Elastoplasts, hay fever etc) and appropriate information passed on to the school.

Local Authority policy allows only plasters, sterile dressings and bandages to be kept in the school First Aid boxes. The majority of staff in our school are First Aid trained.
