All medicine administered to children is dispensed through the school office. Children are not to keep medicine in their bags and self-dose, with the exception of asthma inhalers.
The school will only administer prescription medication to students whose parents have made a formal request. This includes short-term antibiotic courses. A Medicine Authority Form is available HERE and needs to be filled out before medicine can be given.
All medication (e.g., tablets, liquid, epi-pens) must be delivered to the school by parents/caregivers, not by students. Please ensure items are clearly labeled with the child’s name, dose and time to be taken.
Students that have High Health needs will be provided with a High Health Care Plan written in conjunction with parents/caregivers and the SENCO. These documents are held on the medical register and shared with staff.
Pain relief – If you do not wish your child to be given paracetamol (as indicated on the enrolment form), please contact the school office in writing.
