Medicines in Schools

Children should not bring any medicines into school.  Any prescription medicines should be given at home when possible and local doctors prescribe to make this possible.

 

In exceptional circumstances, if medication needs to be given at school then a form needs to be filled in at the office.

 

If your child has a particular medical condition, please inform the school.  Inhalers must be clearly labelled with your child’s name and given to a teacher to keep in the class area: a form needs to be filled in at the office.

 

Medicals for children are sometimes held in school by school health; the school nurse also visits regularly.  You will always be told when medicals are to take place and be invited to be present.  If you would like to see the school nurse, please ask in school, we may be able to arrange an appointment.
