Medicines

 

In normal circumstances, we do not administer medicines in school.  Where medicine is administered, this must be prescribed by a Doctor.

Normally, medicines prescribed three times daily can be administered at home.   Medicines prescribed four times daily can be taken in school, with the written consent of the parent and completion of a Medicine Authorisation Form.

Any medicine to be taken during the day, including inhalers, MUST be clearly labelled with the child’s name and the required dose and handed in to Administrative staff at the start of the school day.
