Medicines in School Statement

If your child is completing a prescribed course of medicine and is well enough to return to school, you should leave the medicine in the School Office and complete a permission form for this. It will be administered by a member of staff and recorded when and who administered it. Medicines bought over the counter at a chemist cannot be administered at school.

All staff have been trained in basic First Aid and we have 4 members of staff with a full First Aid Training Certificate. Staff have also undertaken Diabetic training, Insulin injection training, Blood glucose training and Epi-pen training. Details of pupils with medical needs are given to all staff including supply staff to ensure the safety of the children.

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure medication needed is in school. The school will not be held responsible for or administer out of date medicines.
