Generally, we operate on the simple principle that if a child requires medicine during the day, they are not well enough to be in school and should stay at home. Children should never be entrusted with bringing any kind of medication into school including cough sweets or similar. 

Occasionally however, a doctor may advise that a child may attend school whilst still needing medication and parents are welcome to come into school to administer the medicine. If this is not possible for any reason, please contact the school office or speak to your child's class teacher or teaching assistant, who maintains an overview of all medical needs in their class.

If your child has an on-going problem, such as a serious allergy, which may affect them while they are at school, please speak to their class teacher, or a member of our Senior Leadership Team. 

We can only administer medicine to your child if they have a prescription. 

You will need to fill in the medicine consent form via Medical Tracker which is our online system at the front office. A senior teacher will give the medicine on your behalf. The medicine must be clearly labelled with the child’s name, date, contents, dose and storage instructions; and be in the original container supplied by the doctor or pharmacist. 

Children with serious allergies should have their medication in school at all times. Asthma inhalers may be kept by the child or teacher for use if needed. Please label clearly with your child’s name. 

For serious illnesses and allergies parents will need to meet with the school nurse so that a care plan can be put in place.
