MEDICINES IN SCHOOL:

All medicines should be administered to children at home. However, if there are circumstances when medicine needs to be administered at school, eg asthma medication, we ask that it is clearly labelled, with the child’s name and clear instructions relating to the dosage and frequency and is supported by a letter from the home authorising the school for its administration (or our permission form is fully completed).

Our desire and aim is to support the needs of pupils in the best possible way, but at the same time, taking into account all aspects of health and safety in relation to the storage and administration of medicines, the availability of trained staff, and the practical logistics of supporting an extremely large pupil community of over 440 pupils.
