Medication in School
If your child requires regular, long-term access to medication, please complete the "Medication Consent Form" below. We will then complete a "Care Plan" which will be kept in our medical files.
If a pupil needs to complete a short course of medication, it is preferred that this is done outside school hours. If this is impossible because the medication needs to be taken four times a day, then parents should bring the medication to the school office in the original packaging with the original pharmacy labels, together with a spoon if necessary. A "Medication Consent Form" will also need to be completed.
Please note that no member of staff will be liable for any ill effects of using medication so long as reasonable care has been taken. Administering medication is on a voluntary basis. Non-prescription medicines are only allowed in school if the exceptional circumstances have been agreed by the Headteacher.
