We can only administer medication in school at lunchtime and this must be prescribed by a doctor for four times a day. Parents must fill in a consent form when bringing in medication.
If your child has an allergy or needs medication to be kept in school, parents should complete a medical form and ensure the child’s name is on the medication. This will be kept in our locked, medical cupboard and used when needed. If the condition is severe, a care plan will be necessary.
If your child suffers from asthma and requires an inhaler, this can be kept in the child’s classroom for ease of access but must be given to the class teacher. Parents should complete a consent form for this medication.
