Administering medicines during the day

Prescription medicines will only be administered during the school day when it would be detrimental to the child’s health or school attendance not to administer it. We can only accept prescription medicines if they are in date, labelled, provided in their original container as dispensed by a pharmacist with clear instructions for administration, dosage and storage.

We will keep a written record of all medicines administered to individual pupils stating the amount of the prescription drug held in school, how much was administered, when and by whom.

If a pupil refuses to take medication we cannot force them to do so and will inform parents so that alternative options can be considered.

The school’s qualified first aiders can administer medicines in the absence of a named member of staff in the individual healthcare plans if they have clear guidance and have had training in the administration.

Medicine Administration Form

Please download the Medicine Administration Form and return by email to the School Office.  Thank you.

Nut Allergy

Firstly, no school can guarantee a truly peanut/nut-free environment however, as we have some children in school who suffer from a severe nut allergy please could I take this opportunity to remind everyone that the following items should not be brought into school. Peanuts Peanut butter sandwiches, Nutella/chocolate spread sandwiches, fruit and cereal bars that contain nuts, sesame seed rolls, cakes made with nuts. This list is not exhaustive, so please check the packaging of products closely. Thank you for your co-operation.
