Administration of Medicines

If a child requires medication during the course of the school day, the parent/carer will be asked to complete a Request for School to Administer Medication Form which can be downloaded above. The medication must be prescribed by a medical professional and have the name of the child clearly marked on it. The medication will be administered by Mrs Kenney or Mrs Parr and will either be stored in the Head Teacher’s cupboard, in the fridge in the Food Technology Room or, in the case of controlled drugs, in the locked safe in the school office. 

In the case of Asthma, inhalers are kept in the classrooms by the teacher and are administered by that teacher. Two emergency inhalers are kept in the Head Teacher’s office.
