Medication in School

If your child requires medicine during the school day, the expectation is that either you, as a parent/carer, or another adult nominated by yourself, come into school and administer the medicine personally.


Under exceptional circumstances, the Executive Head or Head of School, may agree to administer medicine, but only if it is practical and reasonable for the school to do so.  If the school agrees to administer prescribed medicine, you will need to complete and sign the appropriate paperwork which is available from the school office.  The school has a policy that staff can volunteer to administer medicine, but are not obliged to do so.


Any medication being brought into school should be handed into the office by an adult.  Medication should never be brought into school by a pupil.
