MEDICATION IN SCHOOL

 

We hope that all of our children stay fit and healthy but we know that sadly this isn't always the case. There are times when some children are fit enough to be in school but may require some medication during the school day. Although we are not obliged to do this, we understand the importance of excellent attendance and as such are willing to administer medicine to pupils in school. We have clear policies in school for this and as such if your child needs medication, we ask that you complete the permission form below. Please note school will only administer medication if it has been prescribed by a doctor and has your child's prescription clearly shown. All medication must come to school in its original packaging. 

 

ASTHMA

We have lots of children who have been diagnosed with asthma and we have clear procedures in place to support these pupils in schools. It is vital that we have an in-date inhaler, and spacer if your child has been given one, so they can use this whenever it is needed. We ask that any child who is diagnosed with asthma completes an Asthma Card and hands this in to the school office (a downloadable version of this can be found below) Asthma.org.uk have lots of resources to support your child if they are diagnosed. We have attached some helpful resources below.
