Administration of Medication

Medication can only normally be accepted into school where it has been prescribed by a doctor or other medical professional.  All medication supplied to your child by a professional will need to be brought into school by a parent/carer so that relevant documentation can be completed in line with our Administration of Medication Policy.

 

As it is sometimes difficult to contact parents should your child require simple medication e.g. paracetamol we have updated our Administering of Medication Policy to allow us to give your child this medication when necessary as directed by First Aid professionals and the Headteacher/Assistant Headteacher. Aspirin will not be permitted or administered unless there is written authorisation from a medical professional for this to be administered.
