We are happy to administer medication to pupils during the course of the school day in line with the following guidelines:

  •  No medication will be administered without prior consultation with, and written permission from the parent or guardian.  The following form will need to be completed – Medication Form for Parents or Carers
  • Medicines will only be administered by staff willing and suitably trained to do so and then only under the overall direction and responsibility of the Headteacher.
  • Specific cultural and religious views on a pupil’s medical care will be respected but must be made known to the school in writing.
  • When necessary a Personal Health Care Plan will be drawn up in consultation with the school, parents and medical professionals.
  • A minimum amount of medication, required by the pupil, will be held in school to accommodate the needs of that pupil.
  • Medication must be delivered to school by the parent or escort (not sent to school in the child’s bag) and given to the Headteacher (or designated person).
  • Medicines brought into school should be clearly marked with the original dispensing label including:
  1.  the name of the medicine
  2.  the pupil’s name
  3. dosage (including method of administration and times)
  4. special storage requirements
