All medication to be administered in school, whether long term or short term, will need to be accompanied by the relevant forms. We cannot give medicine to children without the proper procedures being followed.
If your child requires an inhaler, please ensure there is one available to be kept in school, along with a spacer if required. Please ensure that your child's inhaler is clearly named and in date.
If your child requires an epi-pen, our policy states that there must be 2 epi-pens, which are held in school. These also need to be clearly named and in date.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your child’s medication is in date.
If you have any concerns regarding medication please come and speak to us.
Health Care Plans
You will be required to fill in a Health Care Plan with your child’s class teacher should they require any form of regular/emergency medication in school. These Health Care Plans will need to be updated every year or if there are medical changes regarding your child.
Your child's class teacher will be able to support you when completing this form if necessary.
