Medicines in School

If your child needs an inhaler during school hours it can be kept by the teacher, in the classroom.  No other medicines will be kept in the classroom – they must be brought to the secretary’s office.

We will only administer prescribed medicines, with the child’s name and dosage clearly identified by the pharmacy on the container. All such medicines must be brought to the office. No responsibility will be taken if a child forgets to come for their medicine. If you bring medicine into school, you will be asked to sign the Medicine Disclaimer Sheet.

Please note that children who are unwell should not be in school, and those who have suffered sickness or diarrhoea should not return to lessons until they have been clear of symptoms for a complete day after the last bout.

Please make sure that we are aware of any allergies or medical conditions that may affect your child during school hours.
