Should your child require medication during the school day, a medication notification form is required. School staff are only authorised to administer medication prescribed by a doctor. Non-prescription medicines may be given by parents throughout the school day. The medication form is available for parents to complete from the school office or can be downloaded here. A copy of our administration of medication policy can also be found here.
In addition to signing the ‘Child Medication Request Form’ we may also require your child to sign the form when selfmedicating, i.e. if they use an inhaler. Please note it is the responsibility of the child to come to the office and request their medicine.
Those children who have a known nut allergy must supply school with an EpiPen. Staff are trained to administer this should an emergency arise.
All prescribed inhalers will be kept with the individual child or in class within easy access at all times to
the children. These inhalers must be taken on school trips and be adequately full, labelled with the child’s name and class. The expiry date should be checked by parents please on a regular basis.
