The new code of Practice on Managing Medicine within school was updated in April 2014; school is aware that General Practitioners are advised to prescribe medication so that it does not have to come into school unless absolutely necessary.
It is the Parents / Carers responsibility to inform the school if medication is required.
Parents / Carers need to come into school to sign the necessary documentation.
The School is only able to administer prescription medicines that have been prescribed from the G.P. or Hospital Consultant.
The pupil's medication should be clearly labelled with the Pharmacist’s instructions and patients name etc. Any prescribed medicines should be taken to the school office or given to the child's class teacher. Under no circumstances must your child be carrying any medication in their own school bag.
Please note that we are not able to give any child Calpol or Neurofen.
All medicines will be stored safely and securely according to the school's policy and will need to be collected at the end of the school day, once again from the school office or Joe’s Club.
