If your child requires medication of any sort we would prefer you to administer this at home.

However, if it is essential that it should be administered from school please seek permission from the Head Teacher who will require you to complete a form requesting administration of medicine but please note this will only be given if no other arrangements can be made. Please note we can only administer medicine that has been perscribed by a doctor.

Medicine must be brought into the office in the original container which has the child's name on it.

Can I stress that teachers are not obliged to administer medicine and staff will not be held responsible. Children who suffer from asthma should be able to administer their inhaler themselves and this should be kept in the office with their name on it.

It is essential if your child has or develops any form of allergy ( e.g. nut allergy) that you inform school as soon as possible.
