Some children may require taking medication in order that they can continue to attend school.
Staff will only administer medication when there is clear written guidance from the parents. Copies of the required Forms 1a and 1b can be obtained from the school office or downloaded below.
Parents are kindly requested to note that:
- A child may only take prescribed and labelled medication once the parent/guardian has completed the administration of medication form
- Parents should deliver the medication to school and only medication supplied by the parent/guardian will be administered to a child
- Pupils will take medication under adult supervision
- Non prescribed medication should be administered at home
Please note that it is a parent/carers responsibility to ensure that any medication including epipens and inhalers are within their use-by-date and stored in school with a signed consent form.
