Medication

It is essential that the school is aware of any regular medication that your child has to take, for example an inhaler for asthma.

If your child needs to take medication during school hours, please obtain a Schools Request to Administer Medication form available from either the school website or school office. This must be fully completed by a parent/carer, including instructions on dosage and time to be taken, before being passed to the school office. All medication must be handed to the school office in the original prescribed container, clearly labelled with the pupil’s name, for safe storage. Please do not put medicine in your child’s lunch box or bag.

In the case of inhalers, children must keep these on them. We can keep a spare inhaler in the First Aid room but this must be clearly named.
