Our medicine policy is clear about when we can help with giving medicine at school and the forms / consents that we need from you to be able to do so. With something like an inhaler or other on-going medication we will ask you to provide a school one that we can keep and we will ask you to meet with staff to complete a simple health care plan and consent form. A short course of antibiotics may not need a dose to be given at school but if it does we will ask you to complete a consent form. We can also support with conditions such as diabetes and epilepsy with the support of health professionals. Your admission forms include the opportunity to tell us about any health issues and we can then discuss your child’s needs further and complete a health care plan if needed.
We will not take any medicine from parents or agree to give them to children before all the necessary paperwork has been completed. Parents are welcome to come into school to give doses of necessary medicine during the day. On no account should children have any form of medication in their book bag or on their peg.
