Medical Information

 

If your child has been prescribed medication for a short term illness, a member of staff can administer the medication on your behalf, providing a medical consent form has been completed. (Forms are available at the school office). Parents must bring the medication to the school office. 

 

THE MEDICATON MUST NOT BE GIVEN TO THE CHILD TO BRING TO THE OFFICE OR HANDED TO A CLASS TEACHER. IF A CONSENT FORM HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED, THEN THE MEDICATION WILL NOT BE ADMINISTERED.

 

The school will keep a record of relevant information when it has administered prescription medicine (i.e. date and time of administration) for reference purposes.

 

The school will not administer any form of non prescription medication i.e.

Calpol

Nurofen

Piriton

Or any other type of preparatory product i.e. antiseptic creams or lotions without the consent of the parent.

 

Please be reminded that no nuts or nut products, such as peanut butter, are to be included in your child’s packed lunch.

Thank you for your co-operation.
