Medicines in school

Does your child need medication during the school day?

This refers to ALL medications - prescribed medicines, over the counter medicines, creams and ointments, cough sweets, sun cream etc.

If at all possible, please give your child their medication before and after school (if, for example, they need three doses of an antibiotic in 24 hours).  

If you would like them to have a non-prescribed medicine during the day you are welcome to drop into school to give it.

If your child needs a prescribed medication during the school day please deliver it to the office in person and fill in a form - 'Request for school to administer medication' (download below or pick one up from the office).  We have nine members of staff trained to give medication and we will store the medicine securely in the Medical Room.

For everyone's safety, please do not send children in with ANY medicines to take themselves, not even cough sweets or sun cream.

 

Chronic conditions

If your child has a long term medical condition (eg, asthma) we will work with you to set up a health care plan.
